Subject: How to Assign a User to Multiple Groups?
On the User Manager page a user can be assigned to a Group.  The label for the group assignment says "Groups:", thats plural.  So I assumed that the groups would be delimited by spaces and entered "user author admin".  Then I when to the Access Control List Management page and clicked the Group dropdown excpecting to see three entries: user, author, and admin.  But my expactations were not met.  Is it possible to assign a user to multiple groups?  If so how do I do this?

Did you mean I need to use commas or give them a try?  I tryed commas and the results were the same as with spaces.

Sorry I misunderstood part of your question. So there are two answers:

1st: use commas to separate different groups for a user

2nd: There is no group dropdown. There is only a selection if your ACL rule should affect a user or a group. Which group or user is to be affected has to be entered manually in the text field.
