Introduction

Project components can be grouped into categories, known as custom component groups, to help you organize a project. These groups are used only as an organizational tool and don't affect the way components are referenced by Harmony. Project components can belong to multiple custom groups.

Creating a New Custom Group

A new custom component group is created using the Add to Group option accessible from these locations:

In the dialog, select Create a New Custom Group and specify a name for the group. Then click Add:

The new group is displayed in the Components tab under the Custom Groups category, containing the component that you added to the new group:

The type of component is displayed in parentheses after the component name.

Adding a Component to an Existing Group

To add a component to an existing group, in the project pane's Components tab, drag a component name to an existing custom group under the Custom Groups category:

You can also use the Add to Group option accessible from these locations:

In the dialog, select Add to an Existing Custom Group and use the dropdown to select the appropriate group. Then click Add:

The component is displayed within the existing group in the Components tab under the Custom Groups category.

Removing a Component from a Group

Components can be removed from a group from the project pane's Components tab.

In the existing group in the Custom Groups category, do one of these to open the actions menu:

  • Right-click the component.
  • Hover over the component, and then click the actions menu icon .

From the menu, select Remove from Group:

The component is removed from the group.

If a group contains only one component and that component is removed from the group, the group remains, without any components in it. To delete a group, use the Ungroup option described below under Ungrouping a Group.

Renaming or Ungrouping a Group

Groups can be renamed or disbanded from the project pane's Components tab.

In the Custom Groups category, do one of these to open the actions menu:

  • Right-click the group.
  • Hover over the group, and then click the actions menu icon .

From the menu, select Rename Group or Ungroup:

Renaming a group positions the cursor on the group name for you to make edits.

Ungrouping a group deletes the group. Note that any components that were part of the group are not deleted.
