This feature and the comparison also
reminds me of the "link items" feature (Item > Link)
Objects move all together when one is moved.
It works a bit like groups except it's not groups.
That's very fine But things become weird
when one resizes one of the linked item :
the other item moves.
The moves depends on which side of the frame is moved.
There seem to be some logic based on some sort of symetry
and the UI even proposes a "change linking point" dialog,
but the logic is... quite unpredictable.
