Stretch command frustration

Not applicable
Ricky, since I've started using SE, I've been having an issue with the STRETCH command regarding the inability to select which elements to stretch. It's similar to a current one that I started pertaining to not being able to act selectively on stacked geometry.

Example: Two groups overlapping and I just want to act on one them. The only way that I've found to do this is to HIDE one of the groups. But that is inconvenient because I have to go into the GROUP structure and find it to UNHIDE it. It would be nice if I could hold down the CTRL key and add/subtract from the selection. I think that the STRETCH command is the only one like this.

Am I missing something that is easier?

Have you tried using layers instead of groups?
You are trying to simulate assemblies.
Try putting the geometry for the different parts on different layers.
