Just noticed that mode_group does not find all entity types. It does not appear to find entities with entity types > 30 (this includes MText, PText and Wall entities etc).

Even if you pass an entity of one of these types to the mode_group call, that entity is not found by mode_group (although it will find other entity types in the group that is identified by the entity).

These are polymorphic entity types (so not sure how much processing Classic DCAL could actually do with them) but it is possible to retrieve these entities with ent_near and calls such as ent_extent do appear to work with them, so it would be useful if mode_group actually found them ...
