Thanks . . .

Ooooh; tedious!

Well . . . I am proposing to have end-users create groups (by clicking 
on a button) that
will then propagate across cards . . . in a standalone . . . Well; I'll 
just have to get "down
'n dirty" and work out the thing in the stack and then see if it still 
works in a standalone.

I wonder if when I exit the stack/standalone I will have to delete the 
group once; or
whether what in fact is happening is the group is being duplicated 
across whichever cards
I use the Place group command on and each instantiation will have to be 
deleted
separately?
