If Mumbai choose to maintain three, the picks is going to be Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah. But this may mean their market finances would reduce by Rs 33 crore and drop to Rs 47 crore to find the remaining squad.

It would be very helpful if it was possible to convert groups with identical content to non-unique components.

How about Components to Groups? This would be extremely helpful when importing Revit models. Revit elements always come in as components which isn't always desirable especially if they're all unique. Thanks!

It might help you if you explode components and use "Loose to groups" plugin by Chris Fullmer. It will put all sets of connented entities to separate groups. But it won't help you much if you keep non-connected entities in each component.

It would be very useful if groups sharing the same definition kept sharing the same definiton as components.

each group becomes a distinct component; you get as many components you had groups before using the plugin; so if the purpose was to create a single component, there are some additional work to be done:
> isolate all the unique components recently created on a scene
> select them
> replace them all by one of them using the native components windows of sketchup

I'm looking for a plugin to convert "Layers to Groups" or "Layers to Components" (bulk).
Does this exist?
Thanks in advance :)

SO if I select multiple the same looking groups and convert them will they each be a single unique component or clones?

That is what I'm talking about -- many thanks!
