Hello,

I would just like to suggest the possibility to group objects in active
world.
(I heve not seen this suggestion posted).

This function is very common in 2D systems (Powerpoint, etc.), and can
be very
usefull to dupplicate/ move/ etc. large number of object, and create
library of complex
objects (without to have to go to renderware authoring).

Uh...you can ever since 2.0 came out. Use [Shift] and [Ctrl] while selecting objects.

haven't seen it? try Eep 3 times, and many others too :) I think any
grouping system would have to be easy to use for newbies and oldies alike,
though... much like Eep's checkboxes-for-actions idea.

Hello,


No, really, and I have spend some time browsing the newsgroups (not enough it
seems).
I have seen on the other hand posting about moving several objects if I am not
wrong.

(eventually several months ago ?, but I am not sure).


I agree.
But as long as I know, grouping are easy to use in Powerpoint, or Toolbooks.
You select several objects, group them, and they just appear as a new object.

Thanks for your answer.


Thierry
