Hi Jacque,

Which one? Do you set clipstorect property using the
checkbox labeled "Resize when setting rect property"?

clipsToRect works without locking the group position too.

Groups with it's boundingRect property set always have the size
specified in this property. If a script changes the group width (or height)
and you leave the card, then return to this same card, this group with the
boundingRect property will recover their size specified in that property.

This does not happen with locked groups or group that have their
clipsToRect property set.
