Chapter 8. Developing a Flair for the Schematic > Assembling Paths into Groups

Assembling Paths into Groups

Most of the time, you'll apply transformations to whole paths rather than to individual points or segments. You may even want to transform multiple objects at one time. So imagine that instead of working with paths and objects, you could manipulate whole pieces of artwork. A boy here, a dog there, a great white shark preparing to eat the both of them a few meters away. This is the beauty of grouping, which allows you to assemble throngs of elements into a single object.

Creating Groups

Suppose, for example, that you've created a graphic made up of several paths. You want to select the graphic easily. To always select and transform the graphic as a complete entity, select all of its elements and choose Object » Group. Or press the common-as-dirt keyboard equivalent, Ctrl+G (Cmd-G on the Mac).
