"Exploding" a symbol

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

How do I explode a symbol, like in AutoCad? I have tried selecting the current symbol and tried ungroup, unlock...but it does not release the symbol to its constituent parts.

Any tips?

On a Mac it's Apple K...so maybe on a PC it's Control K...? Didn't there used to be a command "Symbol to Group" or something similar

Yes, but that was before there were Plug-in Objects. Now it is Convert to Group and works on both symbols and PIOs.

Convert to Group is the one. It will create a group from your Plug in Object or symbol, unless the the symbol or plug-in has on one object in. In that case you don?t have to ungroup the result.
