Add Design "Grouping" Elements

Service Studio
On our radar

In the logic, it might be nice to offer grouping elements like a resize-able "}" bracket, colored semi-transparent boxes, and the like for separation of logic processes.  These would have no impact on the logic itself, merely just visuals for quickly grasping logic flow.

Yeah, I actually thought of this myself in the past, especially the coloured boxes. With a label, you could then name the various sections of an action.

That said, in general you would not want your Actions to become so large this would be needed :). But +1 anyway.

I agree with Kilian that if you feel like you need to group elements in a flow, you should consider refactoring it. My suggestion would be to extract those grouped parts of the flow into a different action. This is now easy to do with the option "Extract to Action" available in the context menu of an action flow.
