Description Bugcruncher 2014-09-29 08:59:13 UTC
Problem description: 
If recording of changes is enabled it is impossible to create Groups, what also might be a bug. But as long as group does not work with enabled recording for changes that limitation should be mentioned in help

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open empty new spreadsheet
2. Move mouse pointer to {Data  ► Group and Outline ► Group}
3. <f1>
   » Help will be shown, no hint concerning limitation
4. {go back to spreadsheet  ► Select columns F:G ► menu Data
   ► Group and Outline ► Group}
   » Group will be created
5. Menu  {Edit  ► Changes ► Record}
6. Menu {Data ► Group and Outline ► Group}
   » Is greyed, will not work 

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: Master

Reproduced the "changes blocking creation of groups" -issue.
I think you should create a new bug for the help issue.
