Sometimes it’s easier to group objects together so you can easily move them around. One example of when you’d use this function is when you create your own floral element design by layering clipart to create something new. Another example would be if you’re creating a game with multiple boxes, it is nice to group together a row and duplicate that row until you get the desired amount.
To group, drag a selection around everything you want to group. You can also select each object individually by holding shift on the keyboard. Hold shift down while you click on all objects you want to group. When you’re through, let go of the shift button and click the “group objects” button in the tool bar.
You’ll notice an orange dotted line outlining the grouped objects. You can move this group around and resize it by clicking the corner anchor and moving it in or out. To ungroup items, click the “Ungroup Objects” button in the tool bar. You’ll notice each item now has their own individual outlines. To deselect the objects, click off of the template.
You can also group text boxes together. Keep in mind that when you do, you can no longer edit the text within the boxes. You would need to ungroup the text boxes to allow editing.
