Symbol Classes


Recommended Posts


Im looking for some info or a script that will allow me to change the class of several symbols at the same time. I know I can right click on the individual symbols in the symbols folder but is there any way to change the class of multiple symbols. I have a library of several hundred hybrid symbols and I need to change most of their classes.

Any pointers . . .

Hello da_muel,

Under the Tools/Utilities/ submenu, you should find a "Set Default Symbol class" command. this will set the default class of ALL symbols in the active document. If you don't want all of them changed, create a new file, import the ones you want to change, run the command, then import them back into your document (replacing the old ones).
