    I'm working on a decently large map and to stay organized I have sheets for each section of the map. As an example, if I want to add some mountains to area X I have a sheet called "MOUNTAINS - X". But when I set that as my active sheet and then click a mountain object, it automatically switches my sheet to "SYMBOLS". I can manually change back after selecting the mountain asset, but if I want to use a few different ones I need to change the sheet back each time. It gets very tedious to constantly make sure I'm on the correct sheet after changing my active symbol. Is there a setting somewhere to disable this automatic sheet switching?

    Thanks!

    For symbols, you can click the options button on top of the symbol catalog, and uncheck the option for 'symbols choose their own sheet'.


    Generally, I do recommend you keep it enabled though. Most symbols are set to look for sheets starting with the word symbols, which means that if your active sheet is named SYMBOL MOUNTAINS - X, it will stay on that sheet instead of switching, while if you are on a sheet not starting with SYMBOLS, it will switch to the default SYMBOLS sheet. Using this when naming your sheet, you can control the auto-select feature better.
