object to symbol

Recommended Posts

Hello 😄

In vector work is there a way or even a script that turns an object into a existing symbol. 

For example lets say i have multiple identical object in the design layers.

what I do now is converts symbol and then I go and delete the other that are the same but then I have to past the one that I converted to symbol in its place.

What I want is just to highlight the others and convert it into the symbol that I already made .

There is already a menu command that does this, under Modify>Convert

Modify>Convert>Replace with symbol..

 

You have to make one symbol first, then select the objects you want to replace with symbols, then run the command.

@josue Corona, what version and modules of Vectorworks do you have? Possibly, the command is not part of Fundamentals.

I believe you should be able to find the command in the Spotlight workspace but not in Fundamentals.

Are you using a localized version?
