Thank you so much Randy! 

 It never occurred to me that select group mode would apply in this way, but of course it makes perfect sense!

Ah well, back to the grindstone.

Thanks again,

David G

It all looks good, but after doing this for some time, I discovered that all groups are disappearing, along with any associated scripts.  The once grouped objects don’t disappear, so at first sight everything looks hunky dory, but actually is badly broken.
