How to change the color multiple frames in a symbol

So my issue is that I created an animation in black, it had symbols and frame by frame animations within the symbol. I then decided I want to make the animation in white instead. I tried to highlight all the frames within my symbols to change the color but that did not work. So instead, I had to go frame by frame and change the color of every single frame (each symbol had 115 frames)

 

My question is, is there a feature that would have allowed me to do this more efficiently and if not can i give product feedback to develop the functionality?

Hi mate,

 

You can use Find and Replace Color from the Edit > Find and Replace menu:

It's hard to tell what the reason for that might be, mate!

 

Make sure you colour pick your black, just in case if it's not 100 black.

 

I can see you have some symbols. If you have just created them but have never entered them, the stuff inside might be invisible to Animate. You may need to manually enter each one of them and deselect the content.

 

Try Find and Replace in a new file with a few boxes to get and idea how it works and make sure that it actually works.
