Object Styles and Groups

I'm running into a number of problems with Object Styles applied to groups that warrant further exploration when time permits:
  • Applying a style to a group affects all the members of the group. This is by design, but it makes object styles for groups a bit useless for most things except anchored object settings and text wrap.
  • If you have text frames inside your group, you need to make sure they're set to ignore text wrap -- while such text frames are immune to the effects of the wrap at the group level, the wraps on other members of the group will affect them.
  • Applying an object style to a group that includes a text frame resets the text frame's first line baseline offset to Ascent even though the style has Text Frame options disabled.
  • Applying an object style to the selected group changes the selection to the last member of the group.
I've verified that all these issues exist in version 4.0.2. I've had to write scripts to deal with the wrap and baseline issues.
