It's rather hard to detect being inside a grouping after entering one. Even harder if you aren't aware a grouping is present (3D objects). And press ESC doesn't help in that case
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Draw
2. Insert a 3D object (say Cube)
3. Rotate the cube (double clicking it & drag)
4. Click on the empty page -> Object deselected, still in grouping mode
Not aware of being inside a grouping
The grouping should be a little more prominent
* Add the Leave grouping button to the toolbar (minimum)
* Some sort visual indication? Frame border/Info Bar/ frame around the page.. or anything else which makes it clear

I guess the only way to know it now is with the content menu, checking if it's says, Enter Group or Exit Group...
UX Team, what's your opinion ?
What's the problem with knot knowing if you are in a group? Maybe the 3D cube is a bad example: two grouped shapes should display their relation when you enter. This is achieved with the Navigator that takes the hierarchy. => WFM
A super-cool solution would be to gray out objects that are not in the current group. But I guess that's a lot of work for not much benefit.

Group and single shape for testing
The attached document has a single shape 'star' and a group containing 'smiley' and 'diamond'. Double-click the smiley. Expected behavior: The star becomes pale, only shapes inside the group are shown normally. Same for 3D-Scenes, shapes outside the scene need to become pale, when you enter the scene.
That had worked in Version: 220.127.116.11 (x64)

It is broken at least since
Version: 18.104.22.168 (x64)
CPU-Threads: 8; BS: Windows 10.0; UI-Render: Standard;

So this is not an 'enhancement' but a true bug.
Heiko: If you do not know, that you are inside a group, you have no clue, why an object is not selectable. Try to select the star by clicking on it, after you have double-clicked the smiley.
A 3D-scene has the additional problem, that users often not even know, that a 3D-scene always acts as group, even if it only contains one objects.
