Symbols Disappear/Blank After Latest Service Pack Upgrade


Just updated VW2020 to the latest service pack. Went to open a file that I was working on last week. My symbols have all disappeared. The symbols were defined in another document, imported into my current document with the missing symbols. Symbols were PDF pages. Might this be the problem?

Ok. this may or may not be a problem.


Here's my situation. I'm creating symbols in Illustrator because it's tied to my signage. I saved the symbols AI file as PDF. I linked the PDF pages to a VW symbols document to create the symbol library. In another document I imported the symbols to use them.


With the latest SP update (or the weekend opening a new session) the symbols in the symbols def VW file are ok. But the file where I'm using them were empty. Is this situation because of PDF file linking? I'm switching to EPS because I know VW embeds. But one of my great frustrations is that VW does embed and not link like my other graphic programs.
