I've a dynamic symbol
I've changed colors of some of the dynamic symbol istances
I want to modify the dynamic symbol main definition but maintaining each of its istances already in place different colors.
Is this something feasible in illustrator?

Hi Thomas.

The answer is Yes.

But keep in mind that if the symbol has several objects, you cannot delete the object you changed earlier.

Check this quick video >> Dynamic Symbols 

Best Regards

Hi Carlos,
thanks for the reply
actually in my workflow I've 'to update' the symbol istances by totally replacing them with other artworks.
I don't know if I'm using the right functionality to do this but this is what I'm trying to do:
- I've an .ai file where I'm using a set of symbols as icons of an app UI I'm mockupping
- In my work flow I've to export different version of that app UI changing those icons
- Currently to do this I'm modifying symbols definitions by deleting the old ones completly and copy\pasting the new ones
- Doing this I'm losing the colors attribution I've done before for such symbols
Am I doing something wrong ?
There's maybe another way to accomplish what I'm trying to do ?
