Swap Symbol for whole layer

Basically, I have made a refined asset of a symbol that I am using in an animation, however I realised that I would have to swap the symbol from the old one to the new one on every keyframe because I already animated motion with the old one

 

Is there a way to swap a symbol in the whole document rather than just one keyframe?

Just for others who might see this thread due to its title:

You can use Swap Multiple Symbols to swap a symbol for a whole layer.

 

1. Lock all layers except the one where your symbol is on.

2. Activate Edit Multiple Frames for the desired frame range and Select All.

3. In the Library click on the symbol you want to swap it with.

4. Execute Swap Multiple Symbols.

It happened again! I figured it out right after I post this! Turns out, I didn't need to swap symbol, I just needed to edit the symbol with the new one! No need to reply, although a Swap All feature would be nice in Animate, although I do use an older version haha
