    You can currently add an object to a symbol by cutting, selecting an object inside the symbol, and then pasting. You can also enter and exit group edit context really quickly by double clicking on a symbol or group. However, you’re right in that you currently can’t drag directly into a symbol. I’ll repurpose this request to focus on that behavior.

    The cut and past trick outlined above does not appear to work with Components - it creates a group but this does not apply to the component - With the new components feature - while there is great flexibility I am unable to edit the component and add or change objects from one thing to another. This means every time I need to make a change/addition to a component -I need to un-group it which orphans all references to the component and start over. In the end, this invalidates the original video example provided for symbols: I can no longer easily swap one icon for another using components. I have to create a new component and reapply it. By allowing objects to be added or changed inside a component - we'd be in a great position to manage edits without a ton or rework - as was originally positioned in this symbols introduction video. Thanks.
