And make sure to go into the "Property Inspector" for the group Jacque 
described and open the Geometry properties.  Click on the vertical pipe 
that that exits the top of the object box and the horizontal pipe that 
exits the left side of the object box.  Each will turn red as you click 
it.   This will ensure that your group resizes with the window.
