Creating Groups

Groups are created and managed in the Group tab of the Control Panel. Use groups to display multiple volumes and groups simultaneously or as part of special blending operations (e.g. RGB blending).

Create selection groups to combine volumes and previously created groups for display. 

When a group is selected for viewing, the volumes in the group are displayed in the order that they appear in the group.

Note: Selecting a volume from within a selection group to display in a view will lock scrolling to within the selection group. This allows quick toggling between volumes within the selection group using the scroll wheel.

  2. At the tab header, click the blue "+" icon.
  3. Click the preferred New Group type.

    • New Selection Group: Combine volumes and groups for display (see Selection Groups).
  4. Type a name for the group.
