    Default group manager

    I'm new to civil 3d. I am a fan of the group command (vanilla acad). I cannot find the group tab/panel on the ribbon or on the menu bar.
    I can type classicgroup and get the dialog box to create a group, but the panel had so many more features.
    Anyone know how I can add this feature in civil 3d?

    Switch to Drafting & Annotation workspace then click the large icon in the upper-left corner of the screen, on the drop-down type "classicgroup" in the search bar. You can find locations for any command there.
    In 2015 it's Ribbon » Home » Groups » Group Manager

    I was unsuccessful in the search. It came back no matches for classicgroup. I am in 2013 civil 3d.

    How about just typing GROUP? I don't recall when they modified the GROUP command, but in 2014 c3d I get CLASSICGROUP and GROUP both working as commands.

    @cadtag: I can type those commands in, but it was a lot more convenient having a ribbon panel to pick from, especially the on/off feature.

    I'm new to c3d, worked in vanilla acad prior to this.
