    How do I group characteristics?

    Use Grouping to Create Sub-Characteristics

    December 24th, 2018

    Use the following steps to group characteristics together. You can use this function to group them under a shared balloon or sub-balloons.

    Step-by-Step Guide:

    1. Click a row in the Table Manager and ctrl+click or shift+click to select multiple rows.
    2. Right-click on one of the selected rows, which displays a right-click menu.
    3. Click Grouping, which will bring out a flyout menu option to either "Group" or "Group with shared balloon".
    4. Selecting "Group" will renumber the characteristics and balloons to create sub-balloons. For example, grouping balloons 13, 14, and 15 will create balloons and characteristic numbers 13.1, 13.2, and 13.3
    5. Selecting "Group with shared balloon" will renumber the characteristics and create a single balloon number for all the selected characteristics. For example, grouping balloons 13, 14, and 15 will create characteristic numbers 13.1, 13.2, and 13.3 as well as share a single balloon number 13 for all three characteristics.
    6. Perform the same steps to ungroup except click on Ungroup in the shortcut menu.
