I need help with the following situation.,
I merged two layers, each of which had an individual piece of line art.
The intention is to join the two drawings together into one object.
The two pieces of line art are now on one layer.When I try to group the two pieces of line art to create one object, that is to say, to create one piece of artwork which was originally two pieces, I get a message "Can't make a group of objects that are within different groups".
Thanks for any help.
That mesage comes up if you do not have the entire group slected, prior to making a group (Except for locked and hidden items I believe).
If you go to your layer, and click then colored ball after the layer name, that will select all in the layer, so your group command should work. An unselected guide in a group can also cause this to come up.
