I built symbol references that go into a table in my body pages, but only one of my symbols does not show up in the table:

Table in the Body Pages:

In addition, when I create a new row to see if it will add the symbol, it creates a new row with the content from the previous row:

Any ACP out there know the issue?  I am novice to moderate-experienced user of Framemaker, so I'm learning.

Thanks!

I'm not entirely clear on the missing symbol and why it's not showing up, but the behavior when adding a row is normal.

When you add a table row, it assigns paragraph tags to the new cell(s). In this case, it's pulling the paragraph tags from the previous row. If you were to change the paragraph tags in that last row, and then create a new row, you'd see your new row containing those tags as specified. This is often very convenient, but in this case might be a touch offputting.

Thanks Matt!  I'll do some investigating, read some tutorials on reference pages and see if I can find out why my reference symbol won't show up.  If you know of any other ACPs that may know the answer, let me know.  Thanks!

Update:  I just needed to add a paragraph tag to one of my table cells to add the symbol, the symbol is set in the catalog.  I think I overthink this stuff
