To work with your projects faster, you can group objects on a slide. Grouping lets you move, rotate, or edit multiple objects as if they were a single object. For example, you select a group and apply a shadow effect. Changes made to the group are applied to all the objects in the group at the same time.
A new ‘folder’ (for example, Group_1) comprising the grouped objects is created in the Timeline.
When you hover your mouse over an object in a group, the outline of the group is marked with dashed-lines.
When you select an object for grouping, all related objects also get grouped. For example, if you select the ‘Success caption’ associated with a click box, failure, hint captions and the click box are also grouped.
You cannot group the following objects:
On question slides, you can group only objects, such as, highlight boxes and buttons.
You can ungroup a group of objects and group them again as necessary.
The ‘group’ folder in the Timeline is created on the layer of the object with the hightest z-index. In the ‘group’ folder, the objects are stacked with the descending order of z-index (from top to bottom of the Timeline).
You can change the z-order of the grouped objects in one of the following ways:
Right-click the object stack, click Arrange, and choose the appropriate option.
Drag-and-drop the object stack at the required level (z-index0.
