    Adding "features" to virtual device

    Since a few versions, manually creating a new virtual device creates a device and a child device named "control".
    I do not see any good point about this, making events needs one more step for selecting the feature of the device.

    I wish I could at least group many variables (or "virtual devices") as features(children) under one single device.

    What is the advantage of having such parent/child device ??
    Can I still use my old child-free virtual devices ???
    Can I copy an old child-free device in a new one, and then use it "normally" ???
    Is there a way to add new features to a device ????

    Don't like either the parent/child device but we'll have to live whit that...

    As for adding new features to virtual device, if you go in Devices, Enable Bulk Edit, select a feature of the device you would like to add new features and select "copy" in the bulk action button, that way you can add as many features you'd like.

    Another way of grouping features under a virtual device is to use Jon00 grouping utility

      I feel that most of the clever solutions have the same name : Jon00 ...
