My symbols have changed, why and can I change them back?
In 2021, we released a major update to the Widgit Symbols, improving quality and consistency whilst helping to better represent the culture and technology of the world we live in.
The new symbols automatically come with Widgit Online.
You do not need to do anything to change your documents to use the new symbols. When you open an existing Widgit Online document or grid, all the symbols will automatically change to the new symbols.
What if I want to use the old symbols?
For a time-limited period, you will still be able to access the legacy symbols, this may help make the transition easier for some learners. To do this, you can choose to use the Legacy Symbols from Settings. Then select the Symbol section and choose "Use Legacy Widgit Symbols".
For Group accounts, this option is available to Admins and Managers.
- Managers can change the setting for themselves to try the new symbols, and see the setting for the rest of the group.
- Admins can change the setting just for themselves or the whole group. They can also choose to override all Managers settings if they wish to.
