I found the problem. I was placing a nested group. Both the engine and
the IDE have trouble with this.
I did place a group and then set the backgroundBehavior to false as Key
suggested. It was false on other cards. I edited the script by adding
a comment. The edited script showed up on other cards. I moved some
controls. They moved everywhere. Cool. It looks shared.
Now "the backgroundNames" (which I had earlier in error called "the
backgrounds"--sorry) returns a list of groups with backgroundBehavior
set to true. It is not the list of shared groups as I speculated. And
it is not the list of groups in a stack, nor is it the list of groups
directly on cards in the stack.
Now, how do I find out if a group is shared or not?
