Additional Comments

Use the place command to add an existing group to a card.

Parameters:

The group is any group in the current stack that is not contained (nested) in another group.

The card is any card in the current stack.

Comments:

When you use the place command the backgroundBehavior property is automatically set to true. This means the group will automatically be added to new cards when the create card command is used. If you do not want the group to act as a background put the following line of code after the place command:

set the backgroundBehavior of bg <name> to false

Important! The words "group" and "background" are not always interchangeable. A group reference with the word "group" refers to a group on the current card. To refer to a group that's not on the current card, you must use the "background" form.

Tip: To have a group automatically placed on newly created cards, leave its backgroundBehaviorproperty as true.
