How can I change bounding box on my symbols?

Hi,

 

I'm a beginner with Adobe animate and am trying to make the bounding box to fit around my symbols. They look like big square blue boxes that interfere when I try to interact with the other symbols. Step by step instructions are a plus.

 

Thank you.

Hi.

 

Use the Free Transform Tool (Q) to manipulate an instance on stage using the bounding box.

The problem I have is the bounding box (blue box). It's too big and makes it difficult to for me to use the bone or rig tool.

Yeah.

 

As @kglad said, you have to either break the selection apart (Ctrl/Cmd + B) or either double-click it to enter the instance and select what is inside the way you want it.
