Deleting grouped control deletes group

Sarah and I have just been working on this. I was updating GLX2 tabs  
if a deleted object was owned by a tab. As it turns out my code was  
triggering an exit from editBackground mode. Very sensitive fellow,  
that. But it was my bad, not Rev's.

We have rev'd the beta three more times and now have a satisfactory  
solution in place. Delete an object while in editBackground mode and  
no exit of background edit mode, and no secondary delete of an object.

All fixed. GLX2 users, Check for Latest Beta and you'll have the fix-- 
along with some of the new features that will be in the GLX2 2.0.2  
release next month.
