Symmetry changes when I don't want it to


Question

I'm following this tutorial on building a Vostok capsule:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNb_paQ_GHM&list=PLyKPnVKJAfBEwlqi98tD4a1_MPa_Ei7-k

and I am having a symmetry problem. I have eight panels, and I want to place four packs of batteries on them. Every time I try to do so, the symmetry automatically switches to eight.  I tried using the X key, but it would only then switch between eight and no symmetry.  The guy doing the tutorial managed to work around this without placing them individually, but I did not get how he did it.   FYI: The relevant part of the video is at 27:10.

If you try to place parts on multi-symmetrical parts, the game will match the existing symmetry.  The only workaround I'm aware of is to set it to single placement & place each battery seperately.

You have to put on the panels in two groups of 4.

Note I'm on mobile so didn't watch the video.

Okay, so it looks like this is how the game is designed. I think the tutorial guy placed them down low enough that they were not on the panels and then slid them upwards. Either way, I now know what is going on and won't try to fight it and will use workarounds.

Thanks.

Yes and after getting used to it and expecting it, I think you'll like it. It allows for quite rapid assembly of complex craft.
