grouping across layers Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have a canvas with multiple layers (10, in fact). If I want to synchronize positioning of objects across the layers, I tried unlocking all layers, making them all visible, and then grouping all objects. This procedure allowed me to recenter the whole canvas. The downside is that when I ungrouped, all the objects had migrated to a single layer, and had not kept their original layer attributes.

How can I achieve the same effect without destroying my layers?

Do you need to group them to do this? Can't you just select all and then move them?
no, because I need them to stay in their correct relative positions if I align them to some new point on the page. grouped I can say "make the whole group align left relative to the page"; just selected, they will all each individually align left.
