Edit a group

This feature is unavailable for AMPHTML ads.

There are several ways to edit a group once it's been created. Edits that you make to the group will affect every instance of the group. You can break apart an instance of a group or create a duplicate group that can be edited separately if you don't want to make changes to all instances of the group.

Editing a group on the stage

You can edit a group by editing an instance of it on the stage.

  1. Select a group on the stage by doing one of the following:
    • Double-click an instance of a group.
    • Right-click (Windows) or Control + click (Mac) an instance of a group and select Edit from the pop-up menu.
  2. Make edits to the child elements inside the group.
  3. Leave the editing mode by doing one of the following:
    • Double-click outside of the group.
    • Click a parent link in the breadcrumb (in the lower left corner of the document workspace).

Your edits will appear in every instance of the group.

Editing a group in the Library

  1. In the Library, right-click (Windows) or Control + click (Mac) the group you want to edit, and select Edit from the pop-up menu. In this group editing mode, the stage will display only the elements contained in the group.
  2. Make any edits to the child elements inside the group.
  3. Leave the group editing mode by clicking a parent link in the breadcrumb (in the lower left corner of the document workspace).

Your edits will appear in every instance of the group.
