Quick trick: clean up Sketch useless symbol overrides in the panel

This content is 5 years old. Remember that the following content might be outdated.

In 2018, I’ve decided to write more quick small posts to share small ressources, tips and tricks that help me in my daily workflow.

This is the first of them and one of my favorite quick tip in Sketch. You may know that you can nest symbols in other symbols and override them. You can also override text content. But when you play the inception symbol game, your overrides panel gets complicated really quickly. Sometimes you don’t need to override every peace of text or symbol you created.

So here is the trick: if you lock some text or some symbols inside a symbol, you won’t see those in the overrides section. Tadaa, cleaner overrides panel!
