Chapter 2. Page Layout > Grouping Objects

Grouping Objects

What does it mean to “group” objects in a page layout program? When you group objects, you’re telling the application to treat the objects as a single object. The objects in the group move and transform (scale, skew, and rotate) as a unit.

To group the objects in a selection, press Command-G/Ctrl-G (or choose Group from either the Object menu or the context menu). Note that you can’t have objects in a group when they’re each on different layers, so when you group the objects, the group moves to the top-most layer of the selection (see Figure 2-58). To ungroup a selected group, press Command-Shift-G/Ctrl-Shift-G (or choose Ungroup from the Context menu or the Object menu).
