Hi Murry,

It's all done with groups. A group can contain a single background template, several of them, or all of them. To put a background template in a group (or remove it from one), click on it and then press G:

Or click the toolbutton and drag a fence rectangle around the templates to be grouped:

Quick move methods:

1. press the BACKSLASH key to shift a group. (Shift means move without rotating, nothing to do with the shift key on the keyboard.)

2. press the FORWARDSLASH key to rotate a group.

(Those keys are conveniently left and right on the bottom row of the UK keyboard.)

More methods:

3. there is a video about using the notch-linking function to move and join groups at:

skip the first part about creating and grouping a slip.

Glad you liked the Demo 001. I must do another one soon. :)

cheers,

Martin.
