Hi, I was wondering what is the best way to grouping complex geometric objects in graphics together so that they can be dealt with as a whole in transformations and other geometric and extra-geometrical operations (e.g. duplication with inheritance) . i.e. making graphical objects that have properties which can be dealt with in an organized way. I figured out ways two separate ways that kind work with inset and another with graphics complex, but both seem hackish and a bit messy and this leads me to think I'm perhaps not doing it the correct way. GraphicsGroup, which by the name you might think was for this kind of functionality appears to have a different purpose all together. I don't need a detailed explanation but I could use a tip on where to look. I haven't found anything in the documentation that addresses this in much detail. Thank you, Brentt Newman
