Forcing Classed Sub-Symbols to Use the Class Attributes of Parent Symbol

Recommended Posts

I have a PIO that places a symbol of a certain class.  That symbol contains symbols that are in a different class.  Is there a way to make the symbols inside the parent symbol use the class attributes of the parent symbol?  Unchecking "Use at Creation" for the sub symbol classes has no effect.

Hi Sam,

   On a Design Layer, I don't think so. In a Viewport, maybe, but probably not by the PIO's control. Others may prove me wrong. 


   Without knowing more of what you are trying to achieve, I don't know what else to add.

I agree with Raymond. I don't think there is a way to do it automatically. 


I posted a wish a long time ago for a setting for Class to be By Parent.


Since this is in a PIO what about not using the symbol, but just storing it in the object and exploding a copy so you can set the class to what you want.  If someone later ungroups you will have a problem, but at least you could get your object to look correct with correct classing. But you would also lose the ability to report on those contained symbols.
