I will speak for LibreOffice which is the current standard in Ubuntu. I suppose that it's the same as OpenOffice.

I suppose you have been able already to draw forms?

Normally, as general behaviour of most applications, you select more than one element maintaining the "Ctrl" key down, and clicking on each form which you want to select or deselect.

Suprisingly, in LibreOffice you must pres the "Ctrl" and "Uppercase" keys together, before clicking on the forms. Alternatively, if no other form is between them, you can also press only "Uppercase" and select a rectangle containing the forms.

After having selected more than one form, of course with the usual right-click you have a menu to group them together.

Ok so? If it's ok for you, thank you to close the topic. Too many people forget to do so :-)

Can you help with this problem?
