What are symbols in Adobe Illustrator?
A symbol is an object that we can use in a document multiple times. Not only this but a symbol can even be created in illustrator. For example, if we create a flower symbol, we can add that same symbol multiple times in a single artboard. A symbol can even be modified in Adobe Illustrator.
Uses of symbols
Using symbols can save time and can reduce the file size greatly because we can add a symbol multiple times to our artwork without actually adding the object multiples times.
