Imagine if you could put your fridge into your fridge. The inner fridge would now have its own inner fridge, that also would have an inner fridge. There would be an infinity number of fridges. Animate doesn't let you put a copy of a symbol into an instance of that symbol, because you would immediately have an infinite number of that symbol.

Make sure that every symbol in the Library has a unique name. It may be that you have a symbol inside a Library folder, that has the same name as another symbol in a different folder.

" if you are inside a symbol on the timeline, you can't drag that symbol to the stage, as it would place the symbol iside of itself."

If you had a need where one original symbol needed to have one object inside it in one case, and a different object in another case, you could select one of the symbols on the stage and do a Break Apart, then select the parts that are now broken apart, and make a new symbol from them. That new symbol could have different contents than the original symbol.

I'm not sure where it was solved, but I interpreted the method you told me, changed the name of the layer in the library, and modified it several times, and it was solved! Thank you for your kind information.
