# Issues importing grouped objects with materials and textures

I'm new to blender and still trying some simple things.

I have a scene and importing various models I download from blendswap.com.

The problem I have is: no matter what import option I use, be it append Shift + F1, or simple copy-paste, objects are copied without materials and textures.

What I usually do, since models I import consist of many objects, is group them, and then import, so I can easily manipulate them.

Here is one example:

I also tried File > External Data > Find missing, as well as googled around, however I had no luck finding the solution to this problem.
