How do I make groups in 2.8?

Blender Asked on December 19, 2020

In the Blender Guru Donut tutorial he made a sprinkle for a donut. He copied that sprinkle and made a smaller version of it. He Shift selected both and made a group with the shortcut Ctrl+G. When I do the same it assigns both sprinkles into a collection. I have read that the layer system is redone completely. So when I make a group out of the two objects, is it the same as a group and where can I see that group?

One Answer

Groups and Layers in 2.80 were scrapped and merged into the same thing now for 2.8. These things are called Collections.

Open an Outliner Editor. Click the "Display Mode" button in the header and select "View Layer" from the dropdown menu. You can make a new collection by right-clicking and pressing "New". enter image description here

Then you can rename your new Collection.

Then in the Properties Editor, you assign your collection to be simulated in a particle system.
