Auto layout not working for components?

If I create an auto layout frame with three text items, and then add more text to each of those items, the auto layout works and each item displaces the other.
But if I convert any of those items to a symbol then the auto layout stops working, and the text of each item superimposes.
Is there any way I can work around that?

I would gladly add a video of my question, but the forum doesn’t allow it since i’m new.

My guess is that you forgot to apply autolayout to the text item that you converted into a symbol. Let me know if that works or if you’re still having problems!
