I’m working with one of those annoying purchased patterns that’s made up of 5297 line segments instead of just one continuous curve…
When I import one piece of this pattern, despite it being a bunch of parts I can select it and move it around as a whole in the GFUI.
However, if I copy and paste it, the new object and the original object are no longer treated as groups, which means I have to select each segment individually.
And yes, I know I can draw a box around what I want to select, but 1) if something else is nearby it can make this impossible to do without selecting things I don’t want selected, and 2) the draw a box around stuff functionality frequently doesn’t work for me. I haven’t figured out yet whether this is a browser issue or an interface glitch, because it’s totally random; just comes and goes from moment to moment.
Here’s a sample, in case you need one:
