Improve Group functionality

Overall, I really like Justinmind (though I have only been using it for about one week), but I do find that Groups can be frustrating to work with in this program. Grouping elements together in a logical and consistent manner is a key element in UX design, so this is not a minor issue. I find that I am constantly having to group and ungroup elements and assign the same event to multiple objects.


I would suggest the following enhancements.


1. Give developers a method of selecting an item within a group (Adobe uses a different selector, which might be the best solution).


2. Either enable developers to set an event for a group, or enable developers to select multiple objects that events act upon (or best of all both). I do notice that it is possible to multi-select screens in the "Link to" section of the Interaction screen, but it is not possible to select multiple objects in the other sections. This seems like an unnecessary inconsistency.

Addendum: I guess after trying a little more, I find that #1 has already been implemented. You can select groups as well as individual items within groups. It is, however, a little difficult to select the desired one. I think Adobe's implementation of a different selector is a better option.

I never got a reply on the ability to add events to grouped items. I find that I am spending a great deal of time add interactions to objects that have already been grouped together. This is a big time waster.

It would be really great to be able to add events to groups.
