Group operations are not available to all YME users:

2.10.3.1. Group item relocation

Group item relocation is used when you need to correct the placement of items after satellite images are updated, for example.

Group relocation can only be used for places (Locations, Addresses, Parking lots, etc.) and simple polygonal items (Buildings, Territories, etc.).

To move a group of items:

  1. Click Group operations .

    Select Group relocation in the menu that opens.

    An information panel and local toolbar will open:

  2. Click the appropriate button on the local panel and choose the "highlight map items being moved" mode:

    • (By region mode). In this mode, you can set an area on the map and all places and simple polygonal items that are located within the borders of that area will be selected. Regions are created in a similar way to other simple polygonal map items.
    • (Select by click mode). In this mode, you can highlight items by clicking on them.
  3. Select the items that you want to move. A list of them will appear in the information panel:

    The highlighted items in the list are grouped by category. Every line in the list displays buttons that you can use for editing:

    • — Only leave map items from this category in the list
    • — Delete this category from the list of map items
  4. After you've put together your list of items to move, click Move and drag the items to the appropriate place (by holding down your mouse button).

  5. Click Save. The items will be saved in their new locations.

2.10.3.2. Group attribute editing

You can only use group attribute editing with buildings, sections of road, territories, and parking placemarks.

To edit a group of attributes:

  1. Click Group operations .

    Select Group attribute editing in the menu that opens.

    An information panel and local toolbar will open:

    • (Select by click mode). In this mode, you can highlight items by clicking on them.
  3. Select items whose attributes need to be edited. A list of them will appear in the information panel:

    The highlighted items in the list are grouped by category. Every line in the list displays buttons that you can use for editing:

    • — Only leave map items from this category in the list
    • — Delete this category from the list of map items

    To perform this operation, the list should only contain items from a single category (because items have different attributes depending on the categories):
