Hi @eid,

Information about these sketch groups were added in the NX12.0.2 documentation. Here is the link Sketch group types.

Unique allows you to automatically exclude them from other sketch groups. This way you can rectangle select and these elements will be omitted from another group.

my step is :

1. Select curves and add to the Unique of new sketch group.

2. Choose MenuFormatGroupNew Sketch Group and  click Normal of Group content and trie to select all curve, So!!!! all curve is selected (include curve in Unique group).

An item in one group will not be added to a new unique group. Normal groups take whatever you select and don't care about membership in other groups.

 

Try this:

  • ungroup what you have to start fresh
  • create a new unique (or normal) sketch group (set selection filter to curves), select one of the oval shapes
  • create a new unique sketch group (set selection filter to curves), window select around all of the oval shapes. It will appear that all of the curves are being selected, press OK. Select your first unique group in the part navigator to verify contents; now select the other group to verify what was actually grouped vs. what was selected.

Like @cowski said it is really important to use the Type Filter. A lot of users do not think about this.
Sketch groups can also contain sketch dimensions btw.
Really important to know what you want in your group before you select it. Type Filter solves this.
