If you select an entire group, all layers and groups nested in it are treated as a single layer.
One set of transform handles appears on a bounding box that encompasses every layer
in that group. All layer transforms occur around a single anchor point belonging to the

If you select a layer and its parent group, the following occurs:

• The scale handles of the parent group remain available, and the scale handles of the

• The rotation handles of the individual layers remain available. Dragging an object’s

rotation handle rotates that object.
