Lack of groups is one of the larger missing features in pcb. If you 
come from an EDA suite that supports this, pcb feels crippled because 
you simply play the group card. On the other hand, pcb makes ad hoc 
selection much easier than the other EDA packages I know. Most of the
time it guesses correctly what I want. And it provides a convenient 
means to switch off distracting layers.

For the imported graphics (logo?) there is a workaround: Put the lines
in a dedicated footprint.
