Undo "Convert to symbol"

I have an island that I created and added to my library.  I would like to incorporate it into another drawing but need to switch out a sink with a cook top.  How do I explode it - or take it back to it's original components?

If you converted to a symbol then the best bet is to find the original plan where you made it. A copy should at least be in the archives as long as you saved it once.

If it is an architectural block and not a symbol then place it in plan. You can then either explode the block OR better yet, select it, then use the tab key to select objects within the block so you can replace or edit them.

Best practice for things like island that are just an collection of things is to make block to add to the library.

For symbols best practice is to have a folder (and sub folders) where you save any plans used to convert something to a symbol so you can go back and make changes to it.
