If you can select all the objects you want to group, which seems to be the case if you can then move them, try right-clicking on the selected group and then use the Group option in the popup to make them a group.

If, on the other hand, you want to select an object or more within the larger background object without selecting the larger object, then you must put the larger object on another layer and make the layer unchangeable. Look up layers in the manual to see how to do this. I had the latter problem and couldn't see how to select the smaller object I wanted to move without selecting the larger object it was on top of. This forum set me straight about layers and I was then able to select the smaller object without selecting the underlying larger object.

Hope this helps.

I have 3 objects I'd like to combine in Draw (one background image, another image over a portion of the background and one text block also over the background). I'd like to somehow combine them into one object (used to be done by grouping them) that I can then copy and paste elsewhere and re-size as needed without having to separately resize each object. I can't seem to make this happen.

I can't seem to select each object so as to group them. I was able to select the background object (which extends beyond the edges of the other two objects) and selected Modify->Group, and they all seemed to become a part of some kind of group. I can then copy and paste that group, but I can't re-size the group as a whole.

I essentially want to group each object into one so that it gets treated as if it were one object, not three.

Can anyone help?
