Group objects?

Hi,

I can't find any group option. Is there a way to make a group of library objects (a table and 4 chairs for example) and then to copy and paste it somewhere else...

I oculdn't find the newbie section in the forum but this clearly belongs to it... :)

Hold down control and "window" your desired selections insertion/ control points.  You need to have that object type library selected to do so. Example is you would need to be in the tree library to select trees.

Thanks a lot for your reply! The box selection method is a good one. ;)
However, I'm still wondering if there's a way to group selected items?

For example, I place 4 chairs and a table. I can duplicate them using move+ALT.
But if I want to rotate my table+chairs group, all the elements in the group are rotated on their individual axis. If I could group these these elements, I could then rotate them as a group and not individually.

I think this must be possible but I still wonder how...

No grouping as yet, has been asked for many times, so is somewhere buried in the wishlist AFAIK.

Yes, no harm done in requesting this again in the Wish List section.
