Hi Mick,

I'm not sure I'm seeing this same situation. I did notice that it may
depend on how you created your group. If you select a couple of objects,
group them, then add another object to the selection and group that,
when you ungroup, it will be in stages. In other words, your first
ungrouping only ungroups the last object(s) you added, so you need to
ungroup again to get down to the individual objects.

One thing about ungrouping is that it can help and maybe even be
necessary to click outside of your ungrouped frames, then click inside
again to be able to see what is still grouped or not. This is
particularly helpful if you import a PDF as vector, in which case you
almost always have a number of groups of groups.
