This command lets you create a group in the tree view.
It can be used for organizing the structure of your model.


Right-click on the name of your FreeCAD-document in the tree-view and choose "create group".
A group will be created automatically and give the icon of a directory and an automatically chosen name.
You can rename the group by right-clicking on the group and choosing "rename" or using "F2" on your keyboard.
Push FreeCAD-objects into the group or pull them out of the group by clicking on the desired object,
keep left-mouse button pressed and using drag&drop-style to drag the object to desired new location.
As long as there is a "circle with a diagonal line"-sign below the cursor you can't drop your object here.
As soon as the sign changes to a "plus"-symbol it is possible to drop your object here.
