Chapter 5: Hi-Fi Prototyping With Symbols and Repeat Grids

In this chapter, we’ll learn two features that are designed to help you maintain visual consistency (and save you countless hours!) when high-fidelity prototyping. These are – how to create and use symbols, and how to automate the process of adding styles and content to components inside repeat grids.

High-fidelity prototyping is the act of taking a validated and improved low-fidelity mockup and adding visual styles to it — we’ll use symbols and repeat grids to speed up this process.
