Just create a new event sheet called "audio", with a "audio" group on it. Now import that event sheet into wherever you want, and disable the group whenever you want.
Using groups with the same name in different layouts is bad pratice. You can easily make a group global by adding it to an event sheet, and referencing that event sheet everywhere else though.
would require extra event sheets .... or globals.
The suggestion was for a new special group, just for this purpose.
Or perhaps a tick option in the group edit, 'class group' or something.
It would be far easier then tinkering around with extra sheets..
this way you could simply ref the group from any layout...
Also families would help, don?t they?
Another solution is to have a function call on a common event sheet. The function can either turn off sounds itself, or turn off groups in the active event sheet. Whatever you want really!
woudl require functions etc etc
With a simple few subs below a group you can really manage grouping activity very effectiely ... and simple
How can you disable Groups? Last time I looked there was only an activate Group command. Did I miss it? <img src="smileys/smiley3.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
select actioon -> activate group .. and edit the action to "disabled"
