Class assigned to Groups

Recommended Posts

just out of curiosity why in VW 11 does it assign the active class to the group when in previous versions it simply assigned the group to none class.

can this be changed back to how it was in 9.5.3?

sorry if this has been asked previously but i have just today upgraded from 9.5.3 to 11

trying to find all the quirks that will confuse the rest of the office before i let them all at it.

New objects are created in the active class.

A group is a container object. Making a group

is making a new object, so it will (and should)

be assigned to the active class.

This issue has been discussed several times on the VW mailing list over the past several years. There was a clear desire from the users who participated in the discussion to change the behavior so a group is created in the active class. It is unlikely that this would be changed back.
