Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Combine shapes into groups, part of OmniGraffle 6 Essential Training.
…One of the powers of OmniGraffle that we're starting…to get used to is its robust use of objects.…The idea that everything you draw is not just a drawing, but…in fact, an object that can be moved around and manipulated further.…To build on that idea, I want to talk about groups.…That's when you take multiple objects and group them…together, so that they behave like a single object.…And, it's extremely useful, especially as your diagrams get larger.…So, I want to start by grouping this middle row of the associate level.…
And I select them all and then you see right…up there, I now can choose the Group or Ungroup button.…And I want to go ahead and group them.…Okay, so now you can see that as I move that around, it is moving all together.…It is one group of things.…And I'll go ahead and group, Assistant as well.…Creating a second group there.…Now, this is going to give me a lot of…additional possibilities that you may not have thought of yet.…For instance, now alignment works quite differently because of the group.…
