Darn it - did not see this one either.
#find: does indeed return a collection - even possibly an empty collection if it doesn't actually find anything. You can find the size of a collection with #size.
So you can try:
collection := tgroup find:'xyzzy'.
collection size>1 ifTrue:[^ collection first.].
or: collection at: 1
The reason it returns a collection is there may be more than one object with the same name. If you need a unique identifier, use the objectID, which is an instance of TObjectID.
