Try this :
- Generate your setup in normal mode, not Render only. You can pick a small host to make the setup lightweight, as you'll be able to switch Host later on.
- Copy the resulting group
- Paste it in another file
- Right-click, and choose "Edit Skatter Group"
- Skatter will complaint that it cannot find the host and scattered objects, just pick them again.

You can then make your setup as Render Only if needed, etc.

That's clever JBB. What do you mean by this?

Pick the new hosts and scattered objects you want to use.
