Jan,

Thanks for the explanation.  I am using the revGeometry Manager.  I had this
working at some point to resize my objects when my stack was resized.  Now
it doesn't seem to be working.  I thought it had something to do with the
groups locking the size...but obviously there seems to be another issue.
