Specifies whether clicking an object(glossary) in a group selects the object(glossary) or the entire group.Syntax:

set the selectGroupedControls of group <groupname> to {true | false}

Examples:

set the selectGroupedControls to (not the selectGroupedControls)

Use the selectGroupedControls property to control what happens when you click a grouped control.

If the selectGroupedControls property is set to false, clicking an object(glossary) in a group with the Pointer tool selects the entire group. You must set the editBackground property to true to in order select(command), move, resize, and change individual objects in the group.

If the selectGroupedControls is true, clicking an object(glossary) in a group selects only that object(glossary), even if the editBackground is false.

You can change the selectGroupedControls property by choosing Edit → Select Grouped Controls from the menubar.
