Other types of groups

Special types of group are used by some tools and functions to keep objects together and/or to give an object some special behavior.

When you anchor an object to text for example, the object is placed in an Anchored Group, as shown on the status line when you select such an object. Similarly when you make an object repeating (see Repeating Objects) or make it a Live Copy (see Live Copies) the objects are placed inside a "Repeating group" or "Live copy group" respectively.

When one of these groups contain a single object, you can directly select that object instead of selecting the group that encloses it. Look at the Status Line and the Page and Layer Gallery to see this in action.
