Summary0008114: Resizing grouped objects automatically groups objects with other non-selected graphics on page.
DescriptionSelect two or more graphics, then resize them as one. Deselect them, then select just one of the graphics. If there are other graphics on the page you will find that they have suddenly become grouped with the graphic elements that you just resized.
Steps To ReproduceOpen a new, blank document; one page is sufficient. Using the Scrapbook-1 file that I uploaded, drag 4-Bracket onto the page. The 4-Bracket graphic is a set of three lines grouped, duplicated, flipped horizontally, then placed in the Scrapbook as one item.

Deselect the 4-Bracket that you just dragged onto the page. Go back to the Scrapbook and drag another 4-Bracket onto the page. With the second one still selected drag the bottom node to make it taller. Deselect it. Then select one side of the new 4-Bracket. You will find that one or both sides of the new 4-Bracket have become grouped with some or all sides of the first 4-Bracket.
TagsNo tags attached.

After further working in the document I have discovered that my initial observations are not quite correct. I thought that it was resizing the grouped object that caused the unwanted grouping with other objects. However, it appears that merely selecting any object can cause the object to become grouped with random other objects. For example, I have a story in five linked full-page frames, and on page 6 another story begins. Just now I selected the last frame of the first story (on page 5) and it suddenly became grouped with all the frames in the second story.

Furthermore, it appears to have nothing to do with the Scrapbook.

It's just random unwanted grouping of objects when they are selected. I say "random" because the objects to which the selected object becomes grouped make no sense - they're all kinds of objects in all kinds of locations. Of course, there is a logic to it somehow - this is programming. It's just that I can't see the pattern.

Fixed. However existing docs which contains broken groups have to be fixed manually by deleting *the whole group and all its items* and recreating them.
