I noticed that there are two different types of grouping/nesting in Sketch, one is a Shape Group and other is a normal Group denoted by a folder.

What's the difference? And how do I create a Shape Group? I've only encountered them by importing SVGs exported by Illustrator.


Looks like Sketch is treating these Illustrator groups as a combined shape.

Select any two shapes, Layers > Combine > Union

Then, in the Layers List, click on icon and set to None.
