Carbide Create - Grouping objects

I have a graphic SVG file I have imported into Carbide Create. Lot’s of little objects. I have to select each one individually and then Ctl G to group them but they don’t stay grouped.

  1. is there a way to select all?
  2. Is there a way to get the grouping to stay grouped?

The tutorial goes over this so fast and not much detail I can’t figure it out.

Carbide Create doesn’t do formal groups — any selection of multiple objects (do a drag select to get multiple objects or control a to select all) — will be handled as a unit. They won’t stay grouped in current versions.

I’m not sure I understand what you mean by “drag select”… If I select something and then drag it only that object moves.

It’s a real pain selecting multiple small objects in order to move them as a group and if you stop all the “grouping” disappears and you start all over again…

Drag selection is done by clicking on an empty area near an object, then dragging so that the drag rectangle encompasses the object (or part of it in programs such as Carbide Create and Adobe Illustrator) and other objects (or parts of objects).
