When importing folders with large number of files, having to reference these from Features is very annoying.
If a ComponentGroup was created on the fly for the set of items added, it would be much easier to refer to the group as a whole from the respective Feature.

    Nice request, will do this soon. :-) Should be quite simple.

    Thanks!

    Yes that would be nice, but WiX only allows ComponentGroup elements as child element of a Fragment. WixEdit doesn't support Fragment elements (yet?), so this feature will be postponed until WixEdit support Fragment elements or the ComponentGroup can have other parent elements too.
