Feature request: compound symbols


Hi there,

in several situations I would like to use compound symbols. For example: I have defined some application specific buttons and reuse this button in several button groups on different mockups. Until now I have to dupplicate the button for every button group. This blows up my symbol library and makes changes of these items more work. I’d like to organize my symbols hierarchically and assemble them to more complex symbols.



Hey @Patty!

Compound/Nested symbols are quickly becoming one of our most requested features, and we have been looking as to where it might fit on the roadmap. It’s a complicated (and large) undertaking, so we want to make sure we give it the time and attention it deserves.

Needless to say, it’s something we want to do! :smile:

Thanks for taking the time to post your request, Patty. And please don’t hesitate to post any other things you’d like to see added to Mockups!
