Obvious Way To Add To Group?

You can copy an existing object to a group, then delete the original.

You can also set the relayergroupedcontrols to true, then move an object into the correct place in the z order, then return the relayergroupedcontrols to false - this can get tricky, though.

Hi Mike, you need to create the new object when you are editing the group.
Here's how. Using the pointer tool select one of the objects in your
background group. This should frame the whole group (of objects) with a
large box (outlined with a few square points - 8 or 9 I think). At this
point select "Edit Group" from the icon menu bar. The name in the window bar
(for the card) should change to the name of your background group.
Technically any other object not in your background should also disappear,
but it all of your objects are in the background you won't see any change...
only the change in the window title will alert you to the fact that you are
now editing the background. Now, anything you create or add to the card will
be added to the existing background (note: I think it is real hard to add an
existing object to the background, I think you just have to create it at
this point). 

Hope this helps.
