    87 '''TODO: Talk about grouping here'''
     87Since the tires will always stay locked to the wheels, we can tell LeoCAD to group them together. Switch to the selection tool then hold the Control key down and click on both and select both pieces, then press Control + G to group them. Now when you select either piece you'll select both of them automatically.

    93 You can try moving the wheel but it's not going to work because it's snapping the movement to a distance that is too big for what you need. Movement snap is a good way to keep standard bricks aligned but it doesn't help when you're trying to align smaller pieces, so now you should either turn it off by clicking on the "Grid Magnet" icon [[Image(snap_grid.png, nolink)]] on the toolbar or select a smaller snap value by using the keyboard (default keys are 1, 2, ..., 9, 0). When you select a different snap value the status bar changes and displays the new value.

Movement snap is a good way to keep standard bricks aligned but it doesn't help when you're trying to align smaller pieces, so now you should either turn it off by clicking on the "Grid Magnet" icon [[Image(snap_grid.png, nolink)]] on the toolbar or select a smaller snap value by using the keyboard (default keys are 1, 2, ..., 9, 0). When you select a different snap value the status bar changes accordingly.
