Hi Alessandro,

I do not understand: "This is not implemented for groups though..."
Isn't a section the same concept as a group?
Where is this 'section' element to be used?
Or is the idea to use it in a (free chosen) group?

I already have > 40 groups/sections(?) (as counted in the 'Advanced
Settings Editor').
I do not think it is possible to bring that back to the 8 you propose,
do you?

Looking into the 'Advanced Settings Editor' I also have double values in
the following 'groups'?
but this could be due to recent changes. Ik will remove my config
