Combine multiple objects into a single object. Then pull them apart again:

Combine Objects

  • Open the outliner (Windows > Outliner)
  • Select the objects you wish to combine
  • Go to Mesh > Combine
  • Combined objects can now be selected in the workspace or the outliner
  • Individual objects in the combined group can now only be selected in the outliner

Separate Objects

  • Select the combined objects in either the outliner or the workspace
  • Go to Mesh > Separate
