Nested Symbols

Harness the power of Symbols, by nesting them.

To create a nested Symbol, just drag an existing instance into another Symbol’s master. It’s that simple! Any updates you make to the Symbol’s master will see the changes propagate throughout your design no matter if they’re inside another Symbol or not. As well as dragging an existing instance into a master, and inserting via the toolbar item, you can also select multiple instances of different Symbols and press Create Symbol in the toolbar.

There’s no limit to how deep you can nest Symbols, but please note a Symbol cannot contain an instance of itself.
