    Default Group-Ungroup

    I have never used this funtion before now, and I'm wondering why not.

    The rest of you users may have already been using this funtion. If so my apologies.

    I had a part that had a bunch of 2d entities that I was moving around to get them located just right. (The actual file was lots of engraving.) And after I had selected them numerous times over and over to move and rotate them, the light bulb went on.

    I used the Group funtion to group the parts that I wanted to act as one entity.

    That way I only had to select the group and all the entities in that group would be selected. Much easier to move and copy things and rotate around.

    When I was happy with the results, then I used the Ungroup funtion and all is back to normal.

    Not something you would use every job, but pretty handy in certain instances.

    The drawing below is a sample. The inner (purple) entities are grouped as one entity. And the outer (lime) entities are grouped as one entity.

    You can do about the same thing with different layer or colors. But some times this may be the way to go.

    Thanks for the tip wms, this is another one that I have saved to a directory under CNC Tips. Figured if it were not saved I would forget about it at some point that I needed it.

    The way I tried, an ad came up to sell a photo connection.

    Default Saving Picture

    SRT, what I have been doing with many of the tips on this site including the ones with pictures is copy the entire text and picture to the clipboard then open up Microsoft word or other word processor and then paste the clipboard to the new document and save it under whatever name I choose.

    Just go to the top of the document you want to copy
    2) hold down left mouse button
    3) Drag the mouse down until all the items are highlighted you want to save
    4) leave up on left mouse button
    5) Right Click and select "COPY"
    6) Open up a word processor document
    7) Right click and select "PASTE"

    Save it and you done.
