Adding objects to a group

I just discovered a cool thing about groups. When editing a group you can 
obviously delete individual objects. You can also create a new object, 
say a button, during a group edit and it'll become part of the group. But 
I always wondered how to add an existing object into a group.

It turns out that if you do a "cut objects" of those objects you want to 
add before you start to edit the group, you can simply paste the objects 
into the group. If the group has its "background behavior" turned on, the 
new objects become part of the background (and appear on all the cards 
that the current group shows up on.)

This provides a lot of flexibility in modifying background-type groups. 
Maybe everyone already knew this but I was jazzed to finally discover it!
