Creating a selection group

In this example, 1 is associated with the curves that are used to create the leaves, 2 is associated with the curves used for the flower. Pressing 1 selects the leaves, pressing 2 selects the flower.

Selection groups let you select specific objects simultaneously without grouping them. Selection groups are associated with numbers from 0 to 9 and are saved with the document. When you press the number associated with a selection group, all objects in this group are selected. You can also select and zoom into all objects in a selection group at the same time. You can add objects to a selection group.

To create a selection group:

1. Click the Pick tool, hold down Shift, and click each object that you want to include in the selection group.

2 . Press Ctrl + a number from 0 to 9.

The number you pressed is associated with the new selection group.

Tips:

  • To select all objects in a selection group, press the number associated with the selection group.
  • To select and zoom in on all objects in a selection group, press twice the number associated with the selection group.
  • To add an object to a selection group, select the object, and press Alt + the number associated with the selection group.
