Hi, I'm new to Adobe animate if someone can help me. I created a character in a symbol, and I would like to use the symbol in several projects, is it possible to export the symbol? where you have to recreate your character for each project and convert it to a symbol.

Hi mate,

 

You can copy/paste a Symbol Instance from the timeline of one FLA document to another while both are open.

 

You can open a second Library panel by using this button

then drag your Symbol from one Library to another.

 

You can also, copy a block of frames or layers from one FLA to another.

 

Hope this helps!
