OK - got this working. though I don"t really get it :)

If the image changes a lot or you will be making lots of these, you

I think that's what i am doing - a resizeable custom control.

You can now move this group like you would the original image.

Yes - but it seems a bit fragile. Or  that is it took a lot of tinkering to
set it right, and then I tried it on an existing group which continas other
objects as well as the graphic and image - and try as I can i can"t get the
same effect.

Is there some documentation on this or can you explain why / what grouped
inks work?
