Creating groups

You can also organize your scene into groups. Now, groups are basically just names that are attached to objects, and so you can use groups to do common operations on larger groups of objects. Let me show you the simplest way to use groups, and that's as a way to select multiple objects. So I have this scene here. In fact, I am going to go ahead and pull up my Properties Panel so I can see it a little bit more, and I am going to go ahead and right-click and Shift+Select both of the Chairs, and then I'm going to group them.

So I am going to go Object>Create New Group. Now, the hotkey for this is Ctrl+G. So when I do that, you can see how the outlines turn green and that tells me they are in a group. If I go over to the Object Panel here and I scroll down, you will see that I have a group for these objects, and by default it's called Group. We can certainly rename it. I am going to go ahead and rename that group, Chairs.

So now both of these objects are in a group called Chair....
