Group Elements

Use the Edit > Grouping > Group command
Use the shortcut: Ctrl/Cmd + G
Click the Group command from the Arrange Elements toolbar.
The following element types cannot be grouped: any of the Dimension types, Zones, Labels, Section/Elevation/IE lines, Cameras. Doors and Windows can only be grouped along with the Wall they are placed into.
(The Suspend Groups icon is also available in the Control Box.)
Note: To change the settings of a single element in a group without using Suspend Groups, use Parameter Transfer.
To make all elements constituting a group independent again, choose Edit > Grouping > Ungroup (shortcut: Ctrl/Cmd+Shift+G).
Ungroup is also available from the Arrange Elements toolbar.)
Clicking Ungroup with the Suspend Groups toggle ON will detach any selected elements from their groups and break down all groups into single independent elements, no matter how complex the nested grouping is.
Clicking Ungroup with the Suspend Groups toggle OFF, for a selection consisting of lower-level groups, the selected group will first be divided into the sub-groups it comprises.
Thus, you may need to repeat the Edit > Grouping> Ungroup command several times before an element can be selected and edited individually.
Edit > Grouping > Autogroup, a toggle command (shortcut: Alt+G), lets you group elements at the same time you create them (instead of creating elements first and then grouping them).
The Autogroup toggle command is also available in the Standard Toolbar and in the Arrange Elements toolbar.
The following Edit menu functions: Drag, Rotate, Mirror, Multiply
Note: If any elements in the selected group are on a hidden layer, they will also be deleted!
When selecting the group, all of its elements will be selected, but with gray dots. Use the Suspend Groups command to edit those grouped items that are not in a locked layer.
