I’m a bit confused by the navigation within the symbols workspace.
A) what does the little house symbol do within the symbol library, on the movable symbol thing which has the “back to wireframe” button on it? It looks like it just goes to the top of the library list - what would I use that for? Is it in order to figure out where a symbol is in the list of the list is very long and contains several libraries?
- mark the symbol on the artboard and the corresponding symbol is marked in the list (i.e. vice versa to what happens when clicking in the left-hand list) Now I need to go to the list and manually find it there. This would also remove the need for the floating symbol name + “back to wireframes” thing since it would already be clear what the item was called.
- having a list of all the items on the artboard which aren’t connected to a symbol, this would make it easier to find those items which are not yet a symbol.
- if the user hasn’t got a library yet, instead of having them click the + symbol, why not just have it created already and guide them from there, this would lower the threshhold to starting using the symbols.
