This is probably expected behavior, but I have notice I am unable to “delete” items in a symbol when editing the instance.
I have several symbols that are in all my wireframes as quick and dirty ‘shapes’ that always need tweaking. For example I have a “popup” symbol that has a header and the buttons and even the shadow, so I can quickly add a message dialog. But I need to change the words and such every time I use it.
I can of course break apart the symbol, and perhaps I should get in the habit of doing so for these symbols that are more “templates” since they serve only to get the element on the page. But I always forget to. And sometime it’s not a template symbol but I want to “delete” one of the elements - for example to show a zero state of a panel that has a tool bar or other elements where keeping it connected to the symbol is beneficial.
Just wondering if deleting symbol objects was something your team had discussed. I noticed today that I was unable to removed the icon from an icon+label shape in a symbol. I clicked the little (x) icon several times before I figured out why nothing was happening (it’s in a symbol!) It’s not quite a delete, but apparently enough of an edit that it is not allowed.
