Design Sketch Basics Introducing Sketch Introduction to Sketch

Why is the symbol folder not copying over? It doesn't add to my layers panel on my artboard.

When I go into the template folder, i select the symbol I want and copy. When i go back to my original file and paste, it doesn't add anything to my layers panel. It inserts what looks like the symbol, but i can't select it or edit it and it doesn't go into the layers panel.

@Lily Maley, That sure sounds strange. Is there any chance you can send me a screenshot, or screen recording of what's happening?

Is the arrow of the artboard in the layer list pointing down to show that its open? You won't see the contents of the artboard when it is collapsed.
