I'm trying to create a Notebook that has multiple Section Groups at the same level of hierarchy, each of which has its own independent sections as children of the Section Group. Something like this:

 

Notebook

> Section Group A

       ] Section 1

       ] Section 2

>Section Group B

       ] Section 1

       ] Section 2

 

The problem is, every time I try to create this type of scenario, the 2nd Section Group winds up indented to be at the same level as the Sections of the 1st Section Group. In other words, like this:

 

Notebook

> Section Group A

       ] Section 1

       ] Section 2

     > Section Group B

           ] Section 1

           ] Section 2

 

I can't Move Section Group B to the left. Is there a way to create peer Section Groups all at the same indent level?

 

Thanks,

@BobInSeattle Hi i have just replicated what you have said, but the following worked for me.

 

Add a 'Section' this will sit above section groups.  When you want to create a new Section Group, then make sure you are focused on the 'Section' when you create the group.  I presume but have not tried after creating the groups you could delete the top section.

 

Notebook

Section

> Section Group A

       ] Section 1

       ] Section 2

>Section Group B

       ] Section 1

       ] Section 2

@Tanya Denton   Aha! That worked beautifully (although the OCD voice inside me rails against the superfluous Section)!

 

Thank you!

Thanks @Tanya Denton, it worked!
