Grouping & Ungrouping Objects

It is sometimes useful to group multiple objects together to make them easier to select, move, and duplicate. For example, if you find a particular arrangement of flowers that goes well with a certain planting pot, you can group all of the flowers and the pot together to make them easy to move and copy.

To group a set of objects:

1.   Click the objects you want to group while holding the Shift key (to allow you to select more than one object).

2.   From the Edit menu, select Group.

To ungroup a set of objects:

1.   Click the group you want to modify to select it.

2.   From the Edit menu, select Ungroup.


    If necessary, groups can be “nested”, meaning that groups can contain other groups.

    If an object is within a group, it cannot be edited. A group must first be ungrouped before the objects inside can be edited normally.

    When placing prebuilt structures using the house, deck, or swimming pool wizards, the objects are grouped for easier placement.
