I know this is a stupid question with an easy answer, but...

I’ve been using Blender for a long time, but I only recently started using it again after a break, and I’ve forgotten how to group objects temporarily and ungroup them… help?

Erm, there’s no way to just group them without joining them? I thought there was.

Parent and child. the children are in a group with the parent. Unparenting removes the child object from the group.

Thanks very much!

I haven’t tried it but it offers a new approach to solving some problems.
