Thanks for the helpful posts. And that is a great idea to create a master page just for symbols.
I can confirm though that the menu is a symbol. When I change it, the button text updates but not the urls.
There is also a red dot in the Inspector
I guess Ill just have to delete all but one and start again, unless there is a solution anyone knows?

Have you tried asking the CC support? They might have had the problem before, for all I know.
Ha en riktig god dag!

Send the project file then we can give the solution

This may sound like a dumb question but you are changing the URL as well as the text

Hi again

Unless you have already taken the drastic action of deleting all the buttons except the one, or you have reported the issue to CC Gurus, then your project file really needs to be shared, so that we can see what's going on.

I have made what must be hundreds and hundreds of components and made them symbols, since CC introduced the symbols thingy, the latest one being at 3:00 am this morning, and it works perfectly, so for me and for others it would appear there is NO BUG

If I recall there was once a" bug" (can't for the life of me remember what it was) but I do know that when it was reported to CC Gurus, they fixed it straight away, and posted an updated SD version.

So in my simple mind, it has to be something to do with either how you have set it up, or that you are doing something wrong or not doing something right :D or your project file is corrupted,

Make a copy of your project file, if there are a lot of pages delete them from the copy, (except for 3 or 4
if the project file is still too big, ZIP it and post it on something like "dropbox" so we can then take a quick bo-peep

It is very difficult for us mere mortals to even start to guess or understand what's going on, from just words describing or even images.

If you still don't wish to do that, then the least you should do is report it to CC Gurus, but they will still need the project file
