Dynamic symbols?

Let’s say that I build a menu using symbols (rectangle containing 4 icons). The icons are linked to screens. This menu is everywhere in the app.
Can a link on an icons be dynamic depending on the screen that contains this icon?
Ex :
On screen1, the icon 1 will call screen10
On screen2, the icon 1 will call screen11

You can do that, @simple45. It just requires you to override the symbol

Let’s say the icon is already pointing to screen 10 when you place the symbol on screen 1. Nothing to do there.

When you place that symbol on screen 2, you will want to edit the symbol on that screen (not in the symbol library) and override it, changing the icon to link to screen 11.
