One group uneditable


Hi, I’m having troubles with a group of controls in particular. It’s inside a symbol, which I can open and edit, but the controls inside the group can’t be reached. There is no way to select or edit the group, and I’m sure they’re inside the symbol, because they move with it.

The controls in the red box are all in the group:


Hey @JuanMejiasGoma,

It sounds like the group may have been locked before you made it part of the symbol, is it possible?

I’ve just reproduced the issue on my end and I’m reporting it to the dev team as we speak.

In the meantime, would it be possible for you to do the following steps:

  • Break apart the symbol
  • Unlock the specific group
  • Transform the whole selection to symbol again

If needed, feel free to send me your file to and I’ll try to do it for you. :slight_smile:


Thanks a lot for that @Virgin, it’s working fine now :+1:
