How Do You Group Things Together in Figma?

Grouping objects in Figma allows you to organize and manage your design elements quickly and effectively. Grouping elements together helps keep your design project organized and makes it easier to make changes to multiple elements at once.

When you group elements together, they become one object that can be moved, scaled, and rotated as a unit. This can save a lot of time when making changes to multiple elements in the same space.

There are two main ways to group objects in Figma: manually grouping objects, or using the auto-group feature.

Manually Grouping Objects:

Manually grouping objects is a simple process that requires selecting two or more elements, then right-clicking on them and selecting “Group” from the context menu. You can also select multiple elements by holding down the Shift key while you click on each element. Once the elements are grouped, they will move as one object when dragged or resized.

Using Auto-Group:

Using Auto-Group is a bit more advanced than manual grouping but it can come in handy when working with complex projects. Auto-Group automatically groups objects based on their position and size relative to each other.

To use it, simply select an element with your mouse and then press Command+G (Mac) or Control+G (Windows). All nearby elements of similar size will be grouped together.


Grouping objects in Figma is an effective way to keep your design projects organized and efficient. By manually grouping objects or using the auto-group feature, you can quickly create groups of related objects that can be moved around as one unit. With this powerful tool at your fingertips, you’ll be able to create complex designs quickly and easily.
