I just started using Easel about 1h ago, and got instantly surprised at the fact that there is no grouping function. I also found so many posts in this forum asking for this feature dating more than 2 years ago! The combine feature is not a good solution, as it merges paths and settings, and doesn’t allow for a neat un-group without hacks like stuff under the “apps” section. Grouping is a lot more about organizing, aligning and moving shapes.
It’s kind of a shame I just got the machine to work, and I’m already looking for alternatives like F360 as a way to get my work done.
