I have multiple objects accross many layers. What I would like to do is to select all of those objects and then align everything selected (as if it was a group) to something (e.g. to artboard, to some other object etc.). I don't want to align every of selected objects separately but rather to move them all at the same time, exactly as they would be moved if they were grouped.
The problem is - if I select objects and then make a group, all selected objects are pulled out of their layers and are put in the layer of the topmost selected object. If I, after aligning the group, ungroup the objects then I end up with initial layering of the objects being lost, what is not what I would like to happen.
In other words, I'd like to align selected objects treated as a group - but without losing/changing the layering.
