unwanted grouping of parts/shapes

Post by zagnut » Thu Jan 05, 2017 2:25 pm

i often use shapes like squares, rectangles, circles as positioning aids in a drawing and when i go to move them out of the way they drag a bunch of other lines with them....so i have to delete the shape and then draw it again if i need it for further use. or if i'm unlucky enough to have moved everything already i can also do edit>undo and then while everything is still highlighted use the ungroup function.

this is becoming a major PITA. this is the newest release and i'm not sure but it might also have been happening in the previous release as well.

hope there is a fix.

When you make the shapes you are using for positioning, use the the Comments to Machinist feature instead of Auto.

i guess that would work but still seems like a work around to me....still hope it might get ironed out in a future release.

thanks
