Lets say I make a circle with a circle inside it and then group them into one object. I then make 10 copies of that group. Is there a way to count the groups. If you select the objects it shows the count of all the objects.
Lets take it a step further. I select 3 objects: 1 is just an object; another is a group 2 objects and the third is a group of 2 groups- is there a way to count only the outermost objects / groups i.e. 3 objects.
The problem is this: I do a lot of laser cutting and I often set panels up with lots of things but each “thing” (bear, cat, dog, star…whatever) is a grouped object. There just doesn’t seem to be an easy way to tally up the number of “things” (or groups) without having to deal with all the objects within the “things”
