Shape Designer/Group

Using the (Shape Designer's) Selection Tool, you can SHIFT-click to select any number of objects, and then choose the Group command to bind them together into a single, grouped object. A grouped object behaves just like any normal object: you can change its fill or line thickness, drag its corner handles to resize it, drag it by the middle to move it around on the screen, and so on. You can even group grouped objects into still other groups, creating nested groups.

Finale always keeps track of what objects were combined into grouped objects, and can ungroup them in sequence. Select a group by clicking, then choose Ungroup; you’ll see by the appearance of many more corner handles that the grouped object has now been split back into its component single pieces. (Or, if you Ungroup a grouped object, it will split into its component grouped objects.)
