When I make an assembly I like to put the same type of parts in one folder. When you have a part and a linear component pattern for example you can't do this. Atleast not without dissolving the pattern, which is pretty inconvenient in my opinion.

Good feature, however I like to put all parts in folders and subfolders so that I have a better layout. In that case I am missing the functionality to put certain parts and their patterns in the same folder.
