Expand Symbol function no longer available?

Hi all,

I’m currently trying to convert a character whose body parts I originally created with symbols to the preferred method of drawing layers and peg layers ( yes - I know - silly me, but that was in the Animate Pro 2 days and I’d just come from Flash…)

I’m in Animate Pro 3 now and all the documentation says all I need to do is select the symbol on the timeline and choose “Expand Symbol” but there is no such option available.

Was hoping anyone can just verify that this is happening to them as well?

Maybe it’s an accidental left over from previous versions left in the documentation???


Edit>Expand Symbol, or shift+F8.

Doh! I was only doing the right-click contextual menu…
Didn’t think of going up to the top Edit menu…

It happens to all of us.
