💡 Feature Idea: Group or absorb nested areas

1. What you want to be able to do in MURAL

I like to work a lot with nested areas e.g. with one area for a method (let's say "Brainstorming") and a separate area per participant to work in. Thus, everyone could easily jump to their own "workspace" when doing the "Brainstorming" exercise. I would like to be able to easil "connect" nested areas with the outer area to make things movable alltogether as easy as possible. This relates to my other wishes regarding grouping, folding and hiding of nested areas in the Outline ;-)

2. The problem you are trying to solve

Now it's quite annoying at times to move around my "Brainstorming" area with all of the other areas within. I now have to drag a selection to select all of the objects and then move them.

3. Why this helps everyone (or many people)

It's tricky that all of the objects can be absorbed by an area, but areas can't. And it's annoying to think of: "Ahhhh, I have to draw a selection then" and do it to move things around. Life in MURAL could be a little easier with grouping/absorbing of nested areas ;-)
