Difficulty moving "grouped" notes inside "enclosing" note

I created several notes that I wanted to group together. I created a larger note and placed it over the others and sent the larger note “to the back.” I wanted to move two of the enclosed notes to another location within the enclosing note, so I selected them with Cmd-click and tried to move them, but they would not move. I had to move the enclosing note, move the two notes, and move the enclosing note back over the enclosed notes. Moving the enclosing note back was a bit tricky as Scapple wanted to draw a line between them rather than move the "enclosing" note.

Any chance for a real "Group / Ungroup" function?

This isn't something that Scapple supports. It has no idea of hierarchies and I've deliberately stayed away from groupings, so no, sorry, there are no plans for anything like this.

Oh well — I just posted a group/ungroup request... maybe you rethink this decision??
