texture on group

Hello.

Is it possible to put a material on a group composed of children that already have their own material ?
Thanks for help.

No a child material overrules the group material. This is handy when the entire group uses the same material except for a few members. But in the object manager Tags menu you can find a command Copy tag to children.

Thanks for answering.
The problem I grouped everything in a "connect" object and my texturing is messed up when I copy the material from the "connect" to its children.

When it's not a UVW projection the position of the mapping depends on the axis position of the object. So when you copy this kind of projection type to the children the texture can get a different position. In that case make sure the child objects have the axis at the same position as the group.
