Editing in Symbol Mode

When you need to change or modify a symbol you must enter a special symbol editing mode. Entering this mode allows you to view and edit the symbol's Timeline. Any changes you make are stored in the Library and all other instances of the symbol are updated with these changes. You can choose to enter the symbol mode, entirely replacing the view of the main Timeline, or view the symbol in context to the main Timeline. Additionally, you can open the symbol mode in a new window.

Enter Symbol Editing Mode

Select the symbol you want to modify.

Click the Edit menu, and then click Edit Symbols.

Selecting Edit Symbols centers the symbol based on its registration point in the symbol editing work area. The Timeline is not visible.

TIMESAVER Press +E (Mac) or Ctrl+E (Win) to enter symbol editing mode.

Modify the symbol or its Timeline.
