Grouping inside Grouping not that robust

I go eight levels deep with groups in Task Mage, and it works great.

There are a few things you need to realize when doing this, but once you get
the methodology worked out, it is not a problem.

Also, you can know how deep you are by parsing the long name of an object.

like this:

put the long name of me into tName
replace " of " with comma in tName
put the number of items in tName into tNumberOfLevelsDeep

As for objects dissappearing, they are probably off to the side, out of the
exposed area of a group. I would be happy to check out your stack to see if
I can see what is wrong.

Take care,
