I have recently started using OmniGraffle for "mindmapping." I love it. One thing I'm trying to figure out how to do is visibly group nodes ("shapes").

Use Case:
  1. add a bunch of disconnected "nodes" (maybe oval shapes).
  2. start making connections between them.
  3. realize existence of group.
  4. ???

I'd like some visible way to indicate that a bunch of nodes are semantically related. and have this indication stay with the nodes even if they're moved around/rearranged a bit.

Right now i just drew a large oval over all of the related ones, and then sent it to back, but of course as soon as I move any of the members of the group, my oval's off, and in need of readjustment.

What'd be a better way to do this within this powerful tool?
