I just realized while drawing a set of icons in Inkscape that there is a funtion that could be and I think should be added: "Ungroup all". There is such a function in Corel Draw. It is actually the same as Ungroup, but the main and only difference is the following:. Let's say that you work with an objects group, consisting of other groups that consist of other groups If you want to ungroup all the object's groups, you will have to ungroup the 1st group, then ungroup the secondary groups etc It is time consuming or i'd better say "click consuming".

Sometimes several objects need to be manipulated together in a group rather than separately. For example, if you want to keep the position of several objects relative to each other but still be able to grab and move those objects around the canvas quickly and easily.

You might also want to adjust one setting for several objects at the same time, such as fill or transparency. A group is treated as a single object, and for most operations it can be manipulated as such. For example, groups can be "stacked", meaning that you can create groups made of groups or groups other objects. This can be helpful, but it can also be very confusing if it becomes complicated.

Groups cannot, however, be created between groups; in other words, you cannot select one object from two groups and create a new group without destroying or modifying the original groups. To leave a group left-click on an object outside the group rather than the canvas. Objects may be selected from within groups for manipulation without entering or releasing the groups.

This is very useful if you need to quickly change only one member of a group, yet leave the group intact. In order to add objects to a group, you can use several methods, each having its own benefits and drawbacks:.

Working with Objects in a Group Individual objects within a group can be manipulated as normal by "entering" the group. To enter a group, double-click the group. You may then select any object in the group individually to work with it. To select an object within a group without entering that group, press Ctrl and left-click the object.
