Basically, is there a way to make this work? When I group some objects, say a collection of squares, where the group is named “squares,” and then try to reposition them like so:
changeobjects "rectangle", rectangle(545,770,770,1081)
The group does not move, and it becomes unselectable, meaning that in Design View, I can’t click on it and get handles, so I can’t move it or delete it. It shows up in Form Explorer, but changing its coordinates has no effect. I can interact with the grouped object in Data View (when the grouped objects are data cells for example, instead of squares).
The only way I can get out of this seems to be to Select All in the form, which doesn’t appear to select the grouped object (still no handles), and then Arrange > Ungroup, at which point I recover my original squares, but lose grouping on all of the other objects in the form.
Has anyone successfully repositioned a group using a procedure?
