I created an image with 7 shapes I just want to lock it together

I created an image with 7 shapes I just want to lock it together. I’m new to this can some one just give me a simple step by step explanation?

The Glowforge interface doesn’t support grouping, but if you draw a shape around all the others in your design software, it will cause them to lock together on import and you can just “ignore” the surrounding shape and not cut it.

So I have 6 circles and a rectangle around them I want to cut all out together but when I move it it does not all move together. I don’t understand the drawing another shape around it to lock it. So I need to build it in another program?

Okay, your first question was a little vague, so I gave you a general answer.

You can just select them all and move them together. You can do that by holding shift while you select each one, or else do a “select all” by pressing CTRL-A (Cmd-A for Mac). Or click and drag through all of the shapes with your mouse. All the standard “select stuff” moves will work.


Thanks for the answer @geek2nurse , great suggestions! I’m going to close this thread. Thanks for letting us know about this!
