Cannot GROUP track and Text
« on: November 30, 2018, 04:53:05 am »
Working on my Scalextric layout, I find adding text block of the track Part Number ontop of a piece of track allows me to quickly see the part number and keep things easier to maneuver without having to look at the bottom left of the screen as I try to hover or select a piece of track.  It helps me keep my attention on the area of concern without having to look back and forth.

Anyway, I notice there is quite a bit of stuff you can't "GROUP" together.  Like a piece of Scalextric track and a Text Block, although, I can link a Text Block and a rectangle object.  I can't group two pieces of track together although I can join two pieces of track.  It's odd that the GROUP logic treats objects differently in the program, I would just assume GROUP function just ties objects together, regardless of the type of object it is?? 

Now, before someone goes off and says just enable the Labels and Part Number option of the program, that text is soooo small I have to ZOOM so far in to read it, it makes it practically useless.  You can see the comparison below
