I managed to miss that splinter of the thread :(

Tried it.

Lots of them.

212 in the first stack I checked.

I tried a button with the script,

on mouseUp
   repeat with i = 1 to 21
      put the the name of stack i & cr & the number  of lines in (the
revUnplacedGroupIDs of stack i)
      repeat for each line theLin in the revUnplacedGroupIDs of stack i
         put the long name of group id theLin of stack i & cr & the locked
of of group id theLin of stack i

      end repeat
   end repeat
end mouseUp

but I get button "Button": execution error at line n/a (Object: stack
locked, or object's script is executing)

But the object is in stack dna, while the button is on stack mcp, and the
check shows that the group is unlocked
