How to move multiple components into a Tab Component and still keep layout?


I have created a Combination Chart with multiple combo boxes and a slider on my Xcelsius Canvas. Now, I realize that I want to put all of this into a Tab Set Component. How can I move everything into this new Tab Component without messing up all the layout and alignment I have done on all my components already? I tried shift-selecting everything and doing a drag --> drop into the Tab Canvas but they just all stack on top of each other.

Can this be done? Would it be wiser to start a new Xcelsius document, place a Tab Set Component on the canvas and then copy --> paste from the original document into the new one? I'm reluctant to do this though (even within the same document) because it forces all components to be renamed back to their defaults such as Chart 1, Combo Box 1, etc etc.


Bolded my biggest concern on this topic, can components be copy/pasted or cut/pasted and still retain their original name?
