So you have a red square and a circle above the green box and another square and circle below. If I were to select all the red items and merge them, they’d become 1 object that shows up either above or below the green box. I need it to recognize that the bottom red items and the top red items are separate. That way, each group will merge separately so one would still appear above and another below the green box. Is there a way to do this?
PS – I know the easy way to handle this in this example is to just select the top 2 and merge them and then do the bottom separately. Unfortunately, I’m working with a hand-drawn vector with thousands of lines, all mixed together. Doing them one by one just isn’t an option.
