2. Creating Layouts Quickly > 2.3. Behind every good Symbol Is A Good Editor

Behind every good Symbol Is A Good Editor

An important factor in feeling good about your design choices is knowing that you can experiment now and always change things later. You may be wondering how to change an existing symbol. In this case, we need to get rid of the stroke in our box symbol to refine the look of the layout and eliminate the distraction of the distorted lines.

To edit the symbol:

  1. Select any instance of the box symbol on the Stage.

  2. Choose Edit Edit Symbols.

You’ve just entered the fourth dimension, where there are no physical boundaries, and space exists endlessly. Actually, you’ve entered Symbol Editing mode, but some strange things have happened nonetheless. For starters, the other content on the Stage fades into the background. Also, the Edit bar, as shown in Figure 2-9, now says Scene 1, box. Finally, there is a small + (crosshair) symbol in the upper-left corner of your box. Before you go Jerry Maguire (and just freak out), take a deep breath and see the “Symbol Editing Mode” sidebar for more information.
