Group

Groups provide an easy way to combine drawing objects that you need to manipulate as a unit. By default, selecting any member of a group selects all the objects in that group, and you can move, copy, rotate, and modify groups just as you can modify individual objects.

 

The following prompts are displayed.

 

List Groups

Lists names and descriptions of groups defined in the drawing.

 

Order

Changes the numerical order of objects within a group. Reordering is useful when creating tool paths. For example, you can change the cut order for the horizontal and vertical lines of a tool path pattern.

 

Position Number

Specifies the position number of the object to reorder. To reorder a range of objects, specify the first object’s position number.

 

Reverse Order

Reverses the order of all members in a group.

 

Add

Adds objects to a group.

 

Remove

Removes objects from a group.

If you remove all the group’s objects, the group remains defined. You can remove the group definition from the drawing by using the Explode option.

 

Explode

Deletes a group definition by exploding the group into its component objects.

 

Rename

Assigns a new name to an existing group.

Selectable

Specifies whether a group is selectable. When a group is selectable, selecting one object in the group selects the whole group. Objects on locked or frozen layers are not selected.

 

Creates a group.

Group names can be up to 31 characters long and can include letters, numbers, and special characters dollar sign ($), hyphen (-), and underscore (_) but not spaces. The name is converted to uppercase characters.
