Repeating the symbol


New member
In 2001, you could repeat the same symbol multiple times by clicking Properties and then choosing Repeat... button. Now, in WF2.0 the Repeat button is gone. How to repeat already placed symbols. I've found out that you could repeat only newly placed symbols by clicking New button on the Insert Symbol window. But when modifying old drawings created in 2001 repeating the existing symbols isn't possible anymore.

You should be able to copy and paste.

Select the symbol. Go to edit copy or control c. Deselect the symbol and go to edit paste or control v.
