Hi Greg,

There are 3 different types of symbols and you handle invisibility in
in a different way for each.

A Graphic symbol should be invisible only if it is used in a Tween and
it should therefore be the only object in its layer.
If you can't find it easily by clicking it then lock or hide other
layers then
First select Edit > Select All
then Modify > Instance.

A Button with the Up State invisible will appear in a semi transparent
cyan color if
Control > Enable Buttons is not enabled.

A Movie Clip with its first frame empty (invisible) will appear as a
small round circle if not selected or a crosshair if selected.
