There are three ways to access and insert your Symbols in the Mac app: via the Components View, the Insert Window or the Insert Menu.
Open the Insert Window by pressing C or choose Window › Insert. With the Symbols tab selected search or browse for the Symbol you are looking for, then drag and drop its preview onto your Canvas.
Alternatively, you can Insert a Symbol via Insert in the toolbar or using the Insert Menu . From here you can browse through document or Library Symbols, or use the search field to quickly find what you’re looking for.
Switch to the Components View by clicking on the tab in the top-left of the toolbar (you can also use Ctrl + 1 and Ctrl + 2 to toggle between the Canvas and the Components View , respectively).
By default, you’ll see all the Symbols in your document. You can filter this view by clicking on any groups you’ve created for your Symbols in the left sidebar. You can also use the search bar at the top right of the Components View to quickly find the Symbol you’re looking for. Once you’ve found the Symbol you want, click on Insert Symbol in the Inspector to insert it onto your Canvas.
