This dialog allows you to place the selected objects in a existing VisGroup, or make an new VisGroup to contain the selection. Visibility Groups, or VisGroups, are a way to group objects in layers to organize and manipulate them. The primary purpose for VisGroups is to hide pre-defined sets of objects for speed and organizational reasons. For more information on VisGroups, see Grouping and VisGrouping.

Place object in exisiting VisGroup

Create new VisGroup

Click the radio button next to this option, then type in a VisGroup name in the accompanying text field. A new VisGroup with that name will be created, and the selected objects will be added to the VisGroup.
