Delete a polygon group

I can't figure out how to delete a Face Group from the Scene Editor. I don't want to delete the polygons, just the group ... is this possible, am I missing something very obvious?

Have you tried selecting the group and using Object=>Expand Object Group?

I am fairly new to C4D, but I think I saw somewhere that this was the way to ungroup things. I think I also saw something about Shift+Alt+G, but am not sure if it was for C4D.

Good luck!

This is a Silo forum isn't it...? I do use C4D, but my question is about Silo...

LOL, I know. I realized that after I hit Submit, but as a new member, I couldn't get back in until now to change the post.

Are you asking about the Group in the Scene Manager? If so, from what I have seen, The Group there can be deleted by right clicking and selecting Remove Group (I had to then click on the gray area of the panel to get it to respond.) and the group is gone, but the elements are still in the Scene.

OK... I'd done something stupid... As a Mac user, I used a utility to switch my CTRL key into the CMD key in Silo because Silo seems to mess these two keys up on the Mac and as such, I'd lost the ability to right click with CTRL... loos like I'm going to have to find an alternative key setup.

I do not use a Mac, so I do not know how the keys are affected. However, on a PC, it is just a plain right click on the Group that you want to remove (Ctrl is not required.)

It looks to me like the grouping in Silo works a lot like Set in C4D.

I was just being a bit dumb... On the Mac, in the Mouse Settings, although Silo displays the commands as Ctrl+LMB etc, it actually uses the Cmd key which for me was too awkward. So I found a handy little utility that changes the Ctrl key to Cmd just within Silo (called KeyRemap) but that obviously means you can no longer use the Ctrl for the Right click function. Instead I've now set one of Wacom pen buttons to Right Click... I've always manage to get by using the Ctrl for right click and dispensing of middle click altogether...

Ah, okay. Cross platform is way too confusing for me. LOL

I figure I am going to have enough trouble remapping keys to get Silo and C4D (and what I can of ZBrush) to match up so I don't have to remember 1001 key settings.
