Grouping objects binds them together so that you can manipulate them as a single unit. This is particularly effective for protecting and maintaining connections and spatial relationships between objects. For example, you can group all the objects that make up the background or framework of a drawing, and move them without disturbing their relative positioning.
You can break a complex object down into its component objects by ungrouping it. This is useful when you need to make changes to some of the individual objects that comprise a grouped object.
After you have grouped several objects together, you can still select a single object within the group.
