two possible, but not great, answers ... but (something like) this has 
worked for me in the past.

1. - drag/drop the grc rect to the containing group or card (i.e. 
outside the groups it should not be in)

  - drag / drop other groups to before it

2. - select the group it is in

    - "Ungroup"

    - deselect the rect

    - "Group"
