No, this is not supported in 7.x, but I think its a good idea. There
might be trolls tho, in which/how wires move with the objects.

No unfortunately the group function in EAGLE does not work that way. There is a ULP around that somebody on here wrote (I think it's called something like pickgrouped.ulp) which allows you to select a group of components in the schematic and then when you run the ULP you have the corresponding parts selected and moving in you board editor, this might help you out if your schematics have things drawn in sensible groups.

Best Regards,

Rachael

'someone' in this case is me 8-), but pickgrouped.ulp is for picking
up parts in the board editor, that were grouped in the schematic
editor.

But it should be relatively straightforward to write an ulp that saves
the information about grouped objects to a file (or to eaglerc.usr).
