Maintain scale when dragging symbol from panel

v 0.6.2.7

-when placing a symbol, the scale is not always correct, so I drag and drop from the symbols menu/bar, and sometimes the scale is ~70%.

So when I release, and "place" the symbol, it grows, and isn't placed correctly, requiring me to re-select, and then re-place the symbol. Not a huge problem, but feels like an inconsistent experience, buggy, and was probably just an oversight.

Symbols should always come off the menu bar @ 100% scale, so I only have to select and place it once.

        Currently for performance reasons we only use the thumbnail version of the symbol as the system drag and drop image. The actual item's center is placed relative to the center of the thumbnail. Some symbols can be multiple viewports tall (large artboard for instance), so we don't use the full size.

        Are there other apps that work differently or closer to what you'd imagine for reference?
