Creating groups

Slider Groups are available in the Pro version! You can create Groups at the Dashboard:

Groups can contain an unlimited number of sliders. However, they can't contain any other group.

Moving sliders to group

Click on the Slider options (the three dots at the top-right corner) and select Change group. You can also reach it by right clicking on the slider.

Then select the group(s) where you want to move the slider to. You can select more groups by pressing CTRL on Windows and CMD on Mac.

☝️ Note: You can move sliders to a Group one by one.
