Symbol Option Editing

Recommended Posts

In VW 2013, why is it that sometimes when you option double click a symbol instance in the drawing you do not get the choice to Edit Symbol Options, but when you option double click a symbol definition in the Resource Browser you always see the Edit Symbol Options choice?

For even more inconsistency, I just found one symbol instance in my drawing where option double clicking does correctly give me the Edit Symbol Options choice, but when I copy and paste that symbol to another file, not only does it revert and lose the Symbol Options that I just set in the first file, but when I option double click this symbol in the second file to re set these options, it does not even give the Edit Symbol Options choice, so I have to do it via the Resource Browser.

Peter, odd behavior, for sure. What I do is go to the resource browser, or simply go to Top/Plan view (Ctrl+5) and edit the 2d by double-clicking, or go to Plan view (5) and edit the 3d by double-clicking.
