Adding Items to a Group on a Timeline

I am working with an existing file; there is a long glossary in a scrolling text box. I need to add some separator lines. The original items in the glossary were grouped. I can't seem to ungroup the group or, better, add items to the group. When I copy/paste items in the group, they are added to the timeline below the group.

Hi Ken,

By the looks of it you've got a group inside a group, "Scrolling P..." is a group and inside that you have another group called "Group 2" .

Currently you have the "T2" (letter J) inside the "Scrolling P..." group and "Line 2" outside the group on its own.

Quickest way to do this is the select the group you want to add too then holding down ALT on the keyboard then select all the items you want to add whilst still holding ALT and once they've all been selected press CTRL G on the keyboard and this will group them all together, please note it will treat this as a new group so if you've had you grouped renamed it will reset it to Group 1 but its simple to rename.
