moving grouped objects - some objects stay at original position

Recommended Posts

hey guys, when moving grouped objects with the move (m) tool, some objects will remain at their original position with irritating lines (see attached picture). this happens quite often to me, when moving imported objects (e.g. 3DS). if i convert the group to a 3D-Symbol i can move them without any problems. do you a hint for me? maybe there is a option i'm missing while importing or converting the objects?! i'm using VWX 2018, but had this issue also with VWX 2017.




best, tim

It looks like they are meshes/3D polygons and you’re leaving some of the points behind. Are you sure the objects are completely selected? I know from experience this type of import can be difficult to pick through. When you enter the group you’re moving and the surrounding objects disappear, does it contain everything you’re expecting?
