Error description

  • When a sub symbol's parameter was changed after it was added to
    the main symbol, both the old and new parameter names existed in
    the main symbol's CSS. This causes the Symbol Compiler to
    through exception when trying to process the old parameter which
    no longer existed in the underline sub symbol.
    
    When the main symbol is loaded in the editor, the rule for the
    sub-symbol was created based on the main symbol CSS which is
    expected. At this point, only the old parameter is added with no
    knowledge of the modified parameter.
    
    When the sub symbol is selected, the editor will access the
    underline sub symbol to retrieve the list of parameters to
    display them in the Parameters tab. At this point, the
    parameters list is correct (showing only the modified
    parameter). However, the declarations of the sub-symbol's rule
    was not updated. So it still has the old parameter name.
    
    Finally, any trigger to the change in the subsymbol parameter
    from the main symbol, a new declaration will be added because
    this "modified" parameter does not existed in the list of
    declarations (which has the old parameter). As a result, saving
    the main symbol will yield both old and modified parameter in
    the sub symbol.
    

Local fix

  •  Remove the subsymbol and add it back again.
    

Problem summary

  •  Simple workaround provided:  remove the subsymbol and add it
    back to force an update on the parameter names.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
