Chapter 4. Mastering the Art of Selection > Organizing with Multi-Level Groups

Organizing with Multi-Level Groups

Grouping layers in ImageReady helps to organize multiple layers. Layer groups are similar to layer sets, but allow for different kinds of quick manipulation. Layer groups let you move, drag, resize and physically manipulate multiple layers as one. For example, if you're creating a tabbed navigation bar, having all the tabs in one group helps to move and position the objects as one. When you create a layer group, the layers included in the group appear in the Layers palette indented under a heading of Group ending with a number representing a unique value for the group. Using the Layer Select tool you can click on any layer in the group to move the entire group.

Organize with Multi-Level Groups

Open a document in ImageReady.

Select the Layers palette.

Hold down the Shift key, and then click to select the layers you want to add to the group.

Click the Layer menu, point to New, and then click Layer Group From Selected.

ImageReady creates a Group based on the selected layers.

To separate the layers from a group, click the group, click the Layer menu, and then click Delete Layer Group.
