Hi there,

I have a pretty complicated element that I now must remake due to not being able to decouple embedded elements. It is comprised of 2 scrollable containers, 5 lists, a group of tabs and a table.

This describes the grouping & embedding I currently have. Brackets [] will signify grouping, while > will signify embedding:

[[5 text labels, 5 lists, an invisible 1 box table used to align these lists since embedding anchors elements to the top left of a container] > scrollable container, set of tabs] > larger scrollable container

Now I would like to step back a step, and take things out of the large container. However, I can only select the embedded objects for resizing and editting, but cannot ungroup, unembed, nor move.

Once you have selected the embedded element, you can unembed it from the container by clicking the “extract” button. Like this:

Embedded group is not allowed to be ungrouped, unless you extract it from its container.

Sometimes you may feel difficult to select a specific embedded element from complex containers. We will release a new version tomorrow, which allows you to pick embedded element from the Element Selector Dialog.


Hi Xavier,
Thanks for responding.
I know that extract button is available when interacting with embedded elements, but it can’t been seen in this case.
