Managing groups of selected items

You can move and align item groups.

You can select a group of items with a mouse.

The group location and size is displayed in the status bar just as it would be for a single schema item.

You can perform the following actions on a group of items:

  • Align items
  • Distribute items
  • Resize items 

You can set uniform property values for all grouped items in the property palette (horizontal and vertical positions for decorations, font size and color, and more).

Note 1. In a group, you can only change the properties that are available for all items.
Note 2. Group operations are applied to all the selected items except connector lines (since connector lines are rebuilt automatically, you cannot set positions for their segments).
