Mass Replace Symbol using XML

I find that I have the need to replace a large amount of symbols in my Wiring Design with an updated version of the symbol.

Since it is currently not possible to select multiple identical symbols and replace them all at once, I have turned to XML editing to trick VeSys into getting what I want.


However,  I am puzzled with some of the lines in the Wiring Design XML. 


I have identified devices as having a symbolref and a compositeblock.  For the most part these two will have identical UIDs.

To replace a symbol do I only have to replace the UID under a devices symbolref and compositeblock?


What does it mean if a device has multiple symbolrefs or multiple compositeblocks?
