To convert an object to a symbol

1 Select an object or multiple objects.

2 Click Edit > Symbol > New symbol.

3 Type a name for the symbol.

Symbols cannot span layers. If you convert objects on different layers to a symbol, the objects are combined on the topmost object's layer. For more information about layers, see "Working with layers" on page 225.

* You can also convert an existing object or objects to a symbol by dragging the object or objects to the Symbol manager docker. The symbol name is automatically added.
