Detecting/Measuring Groups in ARCHICAD

Hi, I read information in the ARCHICAD Help Center Knowledgebase that :
Sometimes the program [ARCHICAD] is slow because the Project contains lots of Groups (hundreds or even thousands of them). This can be caused by inadvertently grouping elements and multiplying them. [...] you may not be aware just how many groups you have in your Project. The slowdown caused by groups is most visible in the speed of selection/deselection on the Floor Plan.
Is there any way of determining the number of groups in a model through ARCHICAD or a third-party software? How would you do that?

The answer is no. You would probably have to write an Add-On in API to achieve this functionality.
There was another thread about this a while ago:
