    Working with items within groups

    McShaman Community Member

      With nearly all primary Adobe CS applications they offer a way to modify individual items within a group without ungrouping the item. Both Illustrator and InDesign in CS5.5 enable to doubleclick on the group which enters a mode were that item is isolated and only the contents within can be modified. As far as I can tell the only options to do this in Fireworks is to:

       

      * Ungroup and then regroup, which is not ideal because you loose the name of the group and you have to reselect each item again afterwards to regroup

      * Use the sub selection tool, which is also not ideal because it dose not allow you to target sub groups as items

       

      Can anybody else confirm this behavior?
