How do you select and group multiple layers swiftly in Illustrator? Obviously you can tick them one by one and group after that but I am looking way for grouping layers selected between two shift + click's in the menu.
The command key only highlights the object on the Layers Panel. It serves a different purpose. Dragging and rearranging for example.
In order to group elements, each one must be selected, not just highlighted.
To select an object in the Layer panel, you can use the option Key (Mac users).
To group multiple objects you can use
Once you are done selecting, you may proceed to group with
command + G
ps. I don't believe it is possible to select a range of objects. However, you can highlight them and drag inside an existing group.
