Can't group items
show user profile  BishBashRoss
Hi yall.

Got some Maya files that were imported from CAD data. Got them into Max but can't seem to group them all together. It's a car so has shit loads of parts and could really do with making it more manageable.

I have tried this

But it hasn't seemed to help. Group is greyed out in the menu.

Some tries(not in order): ungroup all, convert everything to editable splines/polys, reset xform, unlink button, copy everything to one layer and delete empties, unfreeze all, unhide all. Grouping should work again, at some point.

It's usually as 3joez said. Ungroup the selected objects a bunch of times, then try grouping them.
