create field suddenly not a good chunk

If I'm following that you think it's weird you have to create an object
inside a group, rather than just on a stack/card, then that's weird because
that's exactly what I'm doing. I've been creating bunches of objects and
never bothered with groups.

A while back I was using arbitrary strings of texts as delimiters and the
board thought that was impossible, but went back and confirmed it was
possible. Livecode devs just changed it before I tried it but after more
experienced people had tried it. Could this be similar?
