I am having trouble making groups with the ACAD 2011.  It seems it was a lot easier in older additions. Also, when I create a block, it stays only in the drawing in which it was made.  Is there an easy or quick way to collect all of my blocks in  its own folder?

Thank you for your help, in advance.

Best Regards.

"Also, when I create a block, it stays only in the drawing in which it was made"

 

Block and Wblock is not the same.

GROUP creation has not changed in AutoCAD since introduction: how is it different now?

Or do you just need to keep track of your PICKSTYLE setting? Watch your CTRL+SHIFT+A keyboard combo, it toggles grouping on and off.

What would you like me to explain?

What method do you use to GROUP objects, and how has that changed in your opinion?

Did you by chance come from using LT? Is that the old version you refer to, LT?

I think the question was for me (Different between Block & Wblock)

 

 

Block stays in the drawing

Wblock makes a drawing

I apologize for the mix up.  I should have been more specific.  The groups answer, I understood.  I had the "Ctrl,Shift,A" toggle turned off.  I was not aware of that.  What I did not understand was the difference between Block and WBlock.  How does that put the blocks I make in a separate folder. Or do I need to creat a separate drawing for each block and purposely save it to that folder?  Thanks for your patience.
