Ian, I wonder if you're running into an issue with nested groups.
If you have 2 groups on a card, and group B is nested inside group A, Rev
will say group B is the last group on the card because technically its layer
is higher than group A. This is where scripts can get confused because if
you run the script:
group grc 1 and grc 2 and grp B
...and then immediately reference "the last group", Rev thinks you want
group B instead of the group you just made. "Last" doesn't work the same
here as it does when creating all other objects. This is definitely a pain,
but one workaround is to set the name of the templateGroup to something
unique *before* you create a group, and then you can refer to the group you
want by name, rather than "the last group".
Hope this helps.
