I am wondering how to deal with the new Symbols in Sketch: If I don't need a symbol anymore, (deleting all instances or detaching) it seems to stay in the symbols palette anyway (for what reason?) So my Symbols collection just grows endlessly — Is there any way or plugin to tell sketch that if a symbol itself is not longer used in any instance in the document, that it should be removed from the symbols collection?

Just came across that exact plugin to "tell sketch that if a symbol itself is not longer used in any instance in the document, that it should be removed from the symbols collection". http://sketchhunt.com/2016/05/28/remove-unused-symbols-official-plugin-sketch/
It appears to be created by a developer on the Bohemian team, and can also be found on Github https://github.com/sketchplugins/remove-unused-symbols
or by searching Sketch Toolbox for "Remove unused symbols"

    Could you please explain a bit more what we'll find behind the link you provide and why it answers the question? That way, your answer is still of value in case the link breaks at a later time. Link rot is the main reason we really dislike link-only answers here. Thanks for your effort and keep contributing! – Luciano May 30 '16 at 13:50
