Specifying the name of a group of objects as a parameter to 4D commands that take the object name parameter is a practice best avoided. The reason is that it complicates code maintenance. If you ungroup the objects, the group name becomes invalid. If you regroup the objects, by default they will not have the same group name as before, unless you manually reenter that name into the Object Properties.
