Adding objects to a group

Mark DeHate shared this question 6 years ago

I know there have been a few questions on the behavior of groups already, and group functionality has improved over time. I have a question though that I haven't seen directly answered yet. Can you add an object to a group without breaking the group and re-grouping?

Let's say, for example, I have a button and a link in a group, and I want to change the link to a button. Right now I don't think that's possible. I can move around the objects in the group, I could delete the link from the group, but I can't add something new to the group.

I'll also throw out a potential solution - if we could group and ungroup things by dragging them around in the outline, that would be amazing. I know visually it would be a mess to try and drag and drop things into a group like dynamic panels work...I think the outline would be a good compromise.
