Scott:
Thanks. The IDE is so fubar with groups that I have pretty  much wrecked the work I was doing. I’ll have to wait until next release and hope it’s fixed. Groups seem to be disappearing, getting deleted, losing their location, etc.

I’ll have to put off working on this particular project. I’m sorry I got started on it with the widgets and now it’s hard to go back. So, not so urgent anyway. I just got into it. I have a water management app and was improving it.

Best,
Bill
