Can't Assign Class to Symbol

Recommended Posts

I'm experiencing a behavior that I haven't seen before.  VW has created a class called "Symbol Name-..." and will not let me change the class for the symbol.  It seems to be related to the specific document, when I create a new document and import the symbol, I can change the class freely. 


Any thoughts?

Check in the symbol options (right click the symbol) dialogue that the symbol hasn’t got that option set by default.

Figured it out....  Under Spotlight Preferences, the "Automatically assigning the class of all lighting instruments" was activated...
