Hi,

 

I somehow created a massive group among multiple pages of the document. I cannot edit the group or edit anything on one of the pages even though none of them are locked. Whenever I try to ungroup, it says it is unable to ungroup becauase items will "fall off the pasteboard." Is there anyway to override this feature so that I can ungroup it regardless? This has rendered the page uneditable and I don't care if something falls off the pasteboard.

Also, a group is confined to a single spread, but if you move it so that one of its pageitems falls off the pasteboard you would get the message even with a simple 2 item group.   So, this will ungroup without a problem:     But this won’t because I moved the group so that the page item on the right is completely off the pasteboard:   I could direct select the item, which is off the pasteboard, and delete:

Maybe try expanding the horiontal and vertical pasteboards to the maximum, which is 120"?
