Is there a way to query to see where group-editing mode is enabled (which group)? On a project that I'm working, I'd like to be able to stop the group editing and then restore the previous state. I looked at the commands in the dictionary and did not see a reference to one that would provide

I like to add two more observations for Windows 10 and LC9: I wrote that before LC9 on a secondary monitor menus tend to move into Nirvana as they open not at the location of the menu. This is correct with one exception: The Script Editor's menus are still behaving the old way, maybe not as
