Feature Request: Redirect Symbol Instances to Different Symbols


#1

When I need to swap out symbols, I must delete the existing symbol instances, then replace them with instances of the desired symbol. When the symbols are variations of each other, the ideal would be to simply change the symbol reference of the instance.

Hi neander,

Thank you for your request.
We plan to support swapping of controls in the future. I cannot say if we will support swapping of symbols yet but I will add your input to the discussion.
