Breaking Symbols Apart

Sometimes you’ll need to break a symbol instance so that it is no longer linked to the master symbol. You might do this if you want to add something to the symbol without affecting the other instances. In this way, the content inside the symbol will become a simple graphic that you can adjust without affecting the master symbol you made it from or any of its instances.

Break an Instance

1.
Select an instance on the Stage you would like to break.

2.
Click the Modify menu, and then click Break Apart.

TIMESAVER Press +B (Mac) or Ctrl+B (Win) to quickly break apart a symbol.
