Symbols with multiple features / variants
Would love to be able to construct multi-function symbols... the basic symbol is the same but when I place it, I would like to be able to change it from one of several variants which stays in the same place I put it..
Sounds as somewhat similar a Stipplism plugin from Astute Graphics offers, with their Symbol Variant... but it should be integrated much deeper. Perhaps Symbol Groups?
basically we would like to get multiple variation for symbols

I feel that the reason so many UI projects go Sketch instead of Illustrator is due to componentization of elements throughout the document in collaborative environments.
I feel that Illustrator has much more power and could be used the same way, if only a few features were added.
One of the most important is allowing the use of symbols as UI elements by enabling variable fields.
Currently, I could make a component and save it as a symbol - but if I was to use it in multiple places, then I would need certain fields to be altered.
