Is this related to the other question?  If you have loads of shapes and
text-boxes and things it might be better to copy&Paste those into a Draw
document to do all this sort of thing Regards from Tom :)
If you mean the one about Grouping, then Yes.

Did as you suggested but ran into some difficulties.  Only the first two
lines of each text frame (total 2) were pasted into Draw (although the frame
was the correct size.

Then created the whole item in Draw.  That was successful.  Copied and

This is all tied up with my previous posting seeking advice regarding
sequential numbering of tickets.

What I'm trying to do is avoid the necessity of having to create the number
of tickets I need and typing the number on each one.  At 100 - 150 tickets
that is very laborious :-(

I am not sure of the need for grouping objects, is it to copy and paste. You could create a frame for a ticket, 1/4 your page. Inside that have other text and frames. You can then copy the container ticket frame and paste to duplicate 4 times on your page.
