DSM Questions | Updating & Organizing Symbols

Pretty new to the DSM, but have a few questions in regards to how symbols work in the DSM.


Updating Symbols

When I update a symbol and then try to add to the DSM (+), it simply places a copy. From reading the documentation it should replace or ask if i want a copy.

Also, what if there's multiple symbols that you want to change, can you select them and replace them in one batch upload?


Organizing Symbols

When using sketch symbols I like to keep them organized so I can easily access various states of a text style, button states etc. Similar to the image below.

Is there a way to do this with the DSM? Or would you just upload a default symbol instance (say 'BTN STATE DEFAULT') and when you import to sketch it would automatically import the other states that you've defined in your original sketch library?
