Save as Symbol

Getting Started

Saving an element, row, column, container, or section on your website as a Symbol allows you to use that same item on other pages of the same website. This article will cover the steps and how Saving as a Symbol works on your CMS Site.

Saving and Unlinking as a Symbol

To save something as a Symbol on your site, follow the steps below:

- Hover over the edit tab on any element, row, column, container, or section on your website
- Right-click on it
- Select Save as Symbol
- Give it a name
- Press Save
- To unlink it, hover over the edit tab again
- Press the Globe icon
- Press Yes on the pop-up to unlink the particular item

⚠️ If you create a new page (without saving/publishing) and save any row, section, element, or column as a Symbol, it will only exist as long as the page exists. If the page is deleted, then the Symbol will disappear along with it.

Refer to the GIF below to see how this is done:

Pasting a Saved Symbol

To use a Saved Symbol on any part of the same or a different webpage, follow the steps given below:

- Select Add New Section if you saved a section as a symbol, Add New Container if you saved a container as a symbol, or Add New Element Below if you saved an element as a symbol.
- Next, navigate to the Section Symbols, Container Symbols, or Element Symbols option based on your saved symbols.
- From the list, choose your saved symbol.

Symbol Sync 🔄

Any saved symbols are synced or linked with each other, meaning any changes applied to the linked Row, Column, Section, or Element will reflect on all the others.

Refer to the GIF below to see how this works:

⚠️ Unlike Collections, Saved Symbols can only be used on one website.
