How to edit symbols in myBalsamiq?

In Mockups for Desktop a contextual "Edit symbol source" appears when double-clicking a symbol instance.

However, the same thing doesn't seem to be happening in the myBalsamiq editor.

In the widgets panel under Project Assets, I can right-click a symbol representation and select "Edit Symbol Source" - but nothing happens, apparently???

Btw, I was using IE9.

Hi everyone. This thread has a couple of issues old and new, and not all related, so I want to make sure they all get answered.

The original question about editing a symbol has been working for a while now.

The latest discussion is about Symbol changes affecting HTML view of Mockup. The PNG generation images are mostly fixed and symbols changes should appear in Mockups. The outstanding issue is that occasionally some browsers are aggressively holding on to the image cache. In these cases a Shift+Refresh may be needed. We're pursuing a solution to caching issues and hope to release a fix to that particular issue in a few days.
