Change group layer without changing layers of objects within the group

I have a lot groups, each group has a lot of objects that belong to different layers. Now I need to turn some of these groups on/off, I guess assign these groups to another layer would be one way, but the problem is when I change the layer for these groups, all the objects’ layer will also be changed into that target layer. Is there anyway to work this out? Any alternative solutions?

Hi -

Groups don’t have a layer.

You can select a group and hide or show just that.
Note that you can also name groups by using the -group command (i.e. the dashed version) and use SelGroup to select a specific group from a list.
