Grouping Elements

Not sure of the terminology, but is it possible to "permanently link" 2 or more elements? eg, 3 walls of a building created separately, in order to move their location on a page

Hi thanks for the post! To group several items, hold down the shift key and click all the elements you want in your group. Or you can use "Edit" > "Select All" to group all items on the page to move them. Click inside of your group and then move the selected items.
Another trick is to make the building in sections, one file per section. So for example create the front and one wall. Save with a name of your choice. Then delete the front door, remove the cornice, etc. add a back door and some other elements. Alter the side too. Save with another name.
There is not at present a way to permanently group elements, but it has been suggested and we do see the need for it.
