When group selection is turned on, you can move, copy, rotate, and modify groups just as you can modify individual objects. If you need to edit objects within a group, turn off group selection or use grips to edit individual objects. For more information, see .
In some circumstances, it is useful to control the order in which objects that belong to the same group are selected. For example, a custom routine that generates toolpaths for numerical control devices might depend on a series of contiguous objects in a specified order.
You can reorder group members in two ways: either change the numerical position of individual members or ranges of group members, or reverse the order of all members. The first object in each group is number 0, not number 1.
You can specify objects to be added to or removed from a group at any time. You can also rename a group or change it’s description. If deleting an object or removing it from a group leaves the group empty, the group remains defined but without any members.
