Prev Or Next Symbol In Library


Swaps the currently selected Symbol instance(s) with the next or previous Symbol in the Library.

Works within the confinement of a Library Folder and always goes through the list in alphabetical order.

Suggested use

Quick symbol swapping in cases when Symbols are organized in Library Folders and named according to a naming convention that allows predictable results. 

Example: Different head angle Symbols can be named Head_01, Head_02, Head_03 where the first is front, the second 3/4 and the third profile view and put inside a Head Library Folder. Pressing the shortcut keys will allow quick swapping between the different head comps.
