The panel supports the creation of group, which is convenient for establishing group relationships between elements. After combining multiple scattered elements, they can be moved as a whole on the canvas. Editing the elements in the group needs to enter the group mask, and only the elements in the group mask can be operated, which can effectively block the interference of other non-combined elements.

  • Top Menu - Layout - Gorup - Ungroup all

图 15

Operation Cancel All Combinations will cancel all existing combination statuses on the current panel canvas, and a short prompt in the center of the canvas will indicate that all combinations have been successfully canceled.

Gorup mask

In order to facilitate the operation of objects in the combination without accidentally touching other non-combination objects, the function of combination mask has been added. Double-clicking any object in the combination on the canvas can enter the combination mask. After entering the combination mask, other non-combination objects cannot be selected. You can double-click or press Esc to exit the combination mask.

  • Enter the combination mask, the normal brightness display in the visible mask area on the canvas, and the gray coverage effect outside the mask area.

  • Nested group need to be entered step by step. Every time you double-click an object in the group, switch to the next level of group mask, and only after entering the minimum group where the object is located can the object be selected on the canvas.
    图 19

  • The object tree on the left directly selects the objects in the group, and you can directly enter the mask of the smallest group to select them. The group icon displayed in red indicates that the current canvas is under the group mask.
    图 17

  • Under a group mask, new primitive objects drawn will be automatically added to the group.
    图 21

  • After entering the group mask, all objects in the group will be temporarily elevated and displayed above all non-group objects, while the hierarchical order of objects in the group will be maintained. Exiting the mask will restore the original hierarchical priority display order.

Left group object tree

Anchor positioning

  • Anchor positioning settings for layers and group have been added to the top of the object tree on the left. The layer is selected by default, that is, the object on the canvas will be displayed first in the layer object tree.

  • Switch the selected group to quickly locate the group object tree section.

Drag adjustment

  • Support directly dragging the object adjustment group relationship of the group object tree part. Sub-group can also be dragged and adjusted as a whole.

  • Dragging to the top of the composite object tree will remove the composite object tree.

Hidden group

  • The operation group is hidden, and the objects inside the group are not visible on the canvas. The icon style in front of the objects inside the group in the object tree on the left will remain, but will be displayed transparently.
    图 20

  • Click the Hide Show icon in transparent display, and a pop-up window will prompt the current hidden status of the group where the object is located, and ask if you want to cancel the hiding of the group it is in.
    图 21

Note: When hiding in a group, if you want to switch the hidden display state of the objects in the group, you must first cancel the hiding of the objects in the group.

Locking group

  • Operation group locking only locks the group itself, and does not batch lock the objects within the group. That is, the group as a whole is locked on the canvas, but under the group mask, the unlocked objects within the group can be freely operated within the group.
    图 22

  • If the object in the operation group is locked, it can only be locked within the minimum group where it is located. When its minimum group is not locked, the entire group can be moved, and it cannot operate the locked group object under the group mask.
    图 23
    Simply put, the locking of objects within a group is only locked within a certain level of group.

Other group rules

  • The name of the group is assigned by default when it is created, allowing customization, allowing nullness, and allowing duplication.

  • Combining in the panel library and placing it on the panel canvas also maintains the group property.

  • It does not support multiple selection of objects within and outside the group at the same time across group

  • Allow the existence of empty group, double-clicking on the empty group will also enter the mask mode, and the drawing element will be automatically added to the group.
