Problem with symbol resizing

Problem with symbol resizing

Sketch / General · February 21, 2019 at 12:06pm (Edited 3 weeks ago)

This is the symbol I'm trying to manipulate. Inside, the icons should be always pinned to the top-left of the symbol, like so:

And here is a clip I recorded of what it actually does. It doesn't behave properly as a symbol. However, when I detach it, it behaves quite right.

Any ideas?

I would remove it from the parent group and that should fix it. It’s always messy having different pin/resizing options on children than parents .

Recently i had a big problem where the symbol was working pretty well but the instance wasn't respecting the symbol behaviour. The solution was try "weird" resizing options!
