- Select Place Mode and use the selection tools for Place Mode such as CTRL + Left mouse button on the Group Object Icons.
- Select Move Mode and use the selection tools such as the rectangle drag selection tool, but then remove any Group Object Icons in hidden layers using CTRL + Left mouse button on the unwanted Group Object Icons.
