Keyboard Shortcut for Editing a Symbol


On the Windows Version there’s a “hidden feature” for editing a group: "F2"
It would be great to have this feature for a Symbol either.


Hi @romulus68 and thanks for the suggestion.

F2 allows you to edit/enter a group (just like ENTER or double-click) and this is why it allows you to edit/override a symbol’s properties. Are you looking for a keyboard shortcut to access the Symbols view instead?


Oh, the ENTER Function was new to me.
But I don’t want to switch to the Symbols view.
I want Editing the Symbol. Today I have to use double-click.


You’re right, there’s not keyboard shortcut for editing a symbol’s source, once a symbol is selected. I’m adding your vote for this one. :slight_smile:
