Grouping Objects in NewDraw or the Draw Layer
If you wish to work with several objects as if they were
one object, you can group the objects together. This will
allow you to change the colors all at once, rotate them
around a common center, and move or resize them as if
they were a single object without their positions
changing relative to one another.
To group several objects, follow these steps:
The objects are now grouped into a single object with
a single set of handles.
- Select each object you wish to be in the group by drawing
a box around them with the pointer tool from the drawing tools bar. A set
of handles will appear on each object.
- Choose Group from the Arrange menu or click the group
objects button on the floating tool bar.
To ungroup a set of objects:
NewDraw separates the graphic into its component objects.
- Select the group by clicking anywhere on it.
- Choose Ungroup in the Arrange menu or click the ungroup
button on the tool bar.
For more details on grouping objects, refer to
the chapter on NewDraw in your manual.
