Is it possible to group all objects at once to their background (If all selected at once)? For "Asset Export"when exporting huge amount of icons. enter image description here

Otherwise i have to select every object, like this to group it to its background.

enter image description here

Thanks in advance,

I don't think it's possible to select all objects and have them group the way you want it. This sort of smart grouping feature doesn't (yet) exist in Illustrator, though with the current technology, it's probably something they can accomplish relativley easily.

I would suggest to at least using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+G to quickly group each selection (rather than right click).

The ungroup shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+G.

  • Thanks, i'm using Keyboard shortcuts right now, i was wondering if there was automated way.
