Replace Symbols

Recommended Posts

In 2015 if you used the Replace function on a symbol, VW would remember the symbol folder you were last in and start you there. In 2016, you always start at the top of the symbol list for the current document. Is there a way to gain back the old functionality?

YES, YES, YES !

I think there is a difference whether "preserve folder history" is activated or not, if it is not the last symbol keeps activated as replace symbol. But anyway it safes lots of time if the last replaced symbol or at least the last symbol folder is always still the active one.

One more wish: How about the last symbol that was dragged from the resource browser is the active replace symbol? I very often copy symbols that have the right orientation and replace them with a new symbol that has a corresponding insert point. This is quicker than move a new symbol to the right orientation.

One more question:

After inserting a symbol, the dialog window openes and asks about keeping folder hirarchy.

Once the option "dont show this dialog when drag and drop importing" is chosen to yes, this window will never again appear. Does anyone know how to reactivate it ?
