    Default groups and animations

    just playing and learning
    made a text box
    with a heading format inside for the title
    and normal text for the body

    I inserted a line above and a line below
    and I grouped all together

    I then highlighted the Heading and did web animation
    wobble on mouse over

    saved and did preview
    nothing happened

    I UNGROUPED the text box and lines
    now the animation works ??

    the same thing happens with a widget
    the photo viewer will not process in a group

    to continue my 'research'
    this time a added mouseover animation to a photo next to a text box
    verified worked
    then made a group of the photo and text box
    animation stopped working


    is there a limitation on using groups? or
    am I missing some 'trick' somewhere'

    You know that when grouping text, it will be converted into a bitmap, right?

    I have followed your directions and still get a Wobble Heading. I even grouped this group with a Slider Widget and both worked.

    Groups unless they are grouping across Layers should have their individual objects still function.
    That is why your MouseOver failed.

    If you are hitting edge cases, the easiest would be to upload a bugged design for other to confirm.
    Otherwise ther are too many uncontrolled aspects.

    Boy, not with the latest Xara versions: grouped Text stays as text.
    TG has v17 so someone else might have to confirm that is what is happening for them.

    Thanks for pointing that out, Acorn! That's a good development.

    My mistake in assuming your "mouseover" involved the MouseOver layer.

    Not a worry but proves the use in providing example designs.
