Hi Anastasia,

Thank you for the reply, but I'm afraid you got me wrong. Perhaps I should
have explained myself better.

My ambition is to break a bigger panel so that each piece has its own
The question is relevant to the grade merging, discussed previously in this
thread. I've been working on the Speak Text adjuster group and I tried to
merge these<https://gist.github.com/radmanovi4/6410696#file-example-js-L1-L33>
panels into this<https://gist.github.com/radmanovi4/6410696#file-example-js-L35-L43>
one, as Justin suggested. The important part of the auxSchema is that both
adjusters' panels' type is the big panel
, wordEcho <https://gist.github.com/radmanovi4/6410711#file-example2-js-L22>)
and all this<https://gist.github.com/radmanovi4/6410711#file-example2-js-L13-L15>
is overwritten by the last
so these <https://gist.github.com/radmanovi4/6410696#file-example-js-L8-L11>
are looked for in
instead of the appropriate

Is there an elegant way to work around this?
