Add Points to Point Group

OK, maybe I am being dense but, Is there an easy way to add points to a point group by selection set?

Currently, I make my selection set, Go to Prospector, point groups, Select the point group I want to add points to, right click, select properties, select the "include" tab, Select the "With number matching box, pick the "selection set in drawing" button.

Not very elegant.

On a similar topic, is there a way to drag and drop points from the "all points" point group in the Prospector to another point group as a way to add them to a point group?

Thanks in advance,
Ed

This how we've been adding selected points to point groups for decades. If
you have a better idea, take a trip over to the wish list forum and add it.
I'd be curious to hear a cool idea on this.

Regarding dragging points into a group from another group, this used to
work. I don't know if it's a bug with 2008, but it doesn't work in 2008.

Thanks Matt.
It seems like a right click menu item "add points to point group..." would be handy if points were selected.

I thought that I had read on this forum about dragging and dropping points to point groups in Prospector, but when I tried it I couldn't get it to work.

Yes, it worked perfectly in 2007, but does not work with 2008.

R-Click would be a nice and elegant options for sure. Select in dwg and
right click. Easy enough. Let's hope. Definitely add that to the wish
list forum.
