had I known this from the beginning it would all have "worked out of
the box" because the resetting rects and locs of child objects of the
group was causing the rect of the group to "jump around" hence there
no fixed coord system to work from.

This is great… right we don't see this in the PI for groups… so
definitely hidden!

I think this might be missing from the PI control definitions:


Another related mystery:

there is a new check box in the position for groups

[ ] resize when setting rect property

what does this do?

This makes it so that when you set the left/top/right/bottom fields in the PI it resizes the control rather than move it (if unchecked, setting the left of the control in the PI will move it to that left position; if checked, setting the left of the control will set the width appropriately so left and right are as specified).
