Richard,

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "there's no way to interactively 
create controls inside of groups"...I'm pretty sure I'm doing it.  For 
example, the way I create a scrolling group of images is by starting 
with a blank "canvas group", and then copying an image group (one copy 
for each image) into the canvas group.  Each image group is made up of 
fields, buttons and checkboxes.  The code is:

       put "Image Group " & i into newName
       copy group "Image Group 1" to group "Canvas Group"
       set the name of it to newName

I've never tried it, but I would guess that "copy control x to group y" 
should also work.

Or did you mean something else?
