Is it valid to say (in the mouseUp script)
..... of grp me into ....

Isn't 'me' a button, so "grp me" is unclear ?

[ or did you mean to say    put the short name of grp tGroup into ... ? ]

> You will notice that the “put the short name of grp me ….” statement, the correct group name is in tGroup. However, if you continue past the breakpoint, the code fails. You can verify that the statement “put the short name of grp me into tGroup” works by putting a breakpoint in the group script.
