    Default Symbol Library

    Hello all,

    I created a symbol in the symbol library and then used this symbol 10 times in screens.

    This is a button.

    A client asked to change the color of the button. 

    So I changed the color of a symbol in the symbol library, but the color on the screens, where this symbol is used, didn't change accordingly to the new color ...

    How can I update the change in this symbol all over the project screens?

    Olesia.

    Hello Olesia,

    welcome to the Copa-Data forum!

    Have you saved the symbol after changing the color? Changes takes places after reedited symbol is saved. As well it is important that in this case we are using "link" from the symbol library instead of inserting symbol via holding CTRL.

    Hello Stani,

    Thank you

    Saving the changes and F5 solved the issue.

    What do you by "As well it is important that in this case we are using "link" from the symbol library instead of inserting symbol via holding CTRL" ?

    We have 2 possibilities while inserting the symbols from symbol library:

    1st is by drag and drop only - With this one, we will get only link inserted which means if we change the symbol from the symbol library, all other linked symbols will change as well...

    2nd is by drag and drop while holding the CTRL - With this one we will create a new instance of a symbol from the library, which means technically we will have a 2 different symbols which are looking the same but changing appearance of the one of them wont influence the other.



    I hope i help you out with solving the problem

    Best Regards,
