This is true if placing groups on different cards of the same stack, 
but I think the original poster meant reusing a menu group in 
different stacks/substacks.

The answer is to create a menu group in yet another substack, which 
does nothing else, and activate it from any stack/substack that you 
want to use it with. Unfortunately, I can't give you the required 
commands at this time.
