Grouping objects

Objects can be grouped together to assist with design composition. One or more groups can also belong to a 'parent' group.

Grouped objects remain together so they can be easily selected, moved, copied, and edited as if they are a single object.

Groups, and nested groups, can be broken apart at a later date into their separate components or objects. Ungrouping can be activated on individual groups, or across multiple or nested groups using a single command.

Furthermore, a group can be converted to layer at a later date (if needed) to assist with design organization.

To create a group:
  1. Select multiple objects.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the context toolbar, click Group.
    • From the Layer menu, select Group.
To ungroup objects:
  1. Select the group.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the context toolbar, click Ungroup.
    • From the Layer menu, select Ungroup.
To release a grouped object:
  1. Select the object you wish to move out of the group.
  2. Right click on the object in the Layers panel, and from the menu, choose Release.
To ungroup all grouped objects:
  1. Select grouped objects.
  2. From the Layer menu, select Ungroup All.
