I've been learning rigging and animating etc and often find myself repeatedly selecting the same collection of bones, eg the 4 feet control bones and spine root bone for keyframing a walking animation. At the moment I am manually selecting the bones every keyframe,I was wondering if there was a quick way selecting them all with one/two clicks.

I have tried to use Bone Groups as described in the manual but right click -> selecting them in the outliner does not select anything. I added them by selecting bones in pose mode CTRL+G for bone group menu -> Assign to New Group, and a bone group dutifully appeared in the outliner.

Let me know if a .blend or screenshots would help illustrate the problem, and thanks for any assistance! (Perhaps it is of note I am running 2.8 under Ubuntu 22.04)

If you select one of the bones and then ShiftG > Group, you'll select the whole bone group.
