How Groups Behave

  • An icon, image, or text box can be part of only one group.
  • You can nest groups, one inside another.
  • The size of a group cannot be managed manually. Is adjusts automatically to fit around its contents.
  • Groups have a semi-transparent background, a solid border, and an editable title.
  • Groups cannot exist without having some contents. Deleting the last item in a Group will cause the Group to also be deleted.

When To Use Groups

Groups are useful when you want to visually mark one or more items with a semi-transparent background and a title or make it easy to keep a set of items together.

How To Use Groups

  • Remove something from a Group be selecting one or more items that are currently in Groups, then right-click on one of the selected items and select Ungroup from the options in the context menu.
  • Move a Group and its contents by clicking and dragging the Group.
  • Deleting a Group will delete both the Group and its contents
  • Ungrouping a Group will delete only the Group
