PDFill Group or Ungroup Objects

(See Example PDF and Example PDFill Project File)

To work faster, you can group texts, shapes, pictures, or other objects. Grouping lets you flip, rotate, move, or resize all shapes or objects at the same time as though they were a single shape or object. The group object can be much complicated than each single object.

You can save the group object for future use.

You can group the following PDFill Objects:

PDF Filler: Single Line TextMultiple Line Text, Check, or Image,

PDF Drawing: Line, Arrow, Rectangle, Circle/Ellipse/Arc/Pie, Basic Shapes or Curves

PDF Comment: Line, Arrow, Rectangle, Circle, Polyline, Polygon,  Cloud, or Pencil

You can ungroup a group of objects at any time and then regroup them later.
