When I create groupshots, I typically create one character at a time then save the text. I open the main character / centerpiece first. Before I load the second character, I manually go into the text and make the adjustments to the X coordinates. For instance, adding or subtracting 240 pixels depending on whether I want the other character to stand to the left or the right.

This takes a little patience as you have to do it to every single Item. However, I find it easier. As an added bonus, I learned how to manually tweak large pictures by editing their attributes directly in the text. This is helpful when you have a high number of layers, patterns, and masking. HeroMachine can bog down, sometimes even lock up. And yes, definitely remember to save your creations as text!
