Is it possible to group components into 1 new component which can be places using 1 action.

Say for instance I have a level convert using 2 10k resistors and one bss138 n-fet. It has 4 connections in schematic (high/low vcc, high/low signal) and I would like to save the grouped components to 1 new component and use it. Now I need to copy/paste it from another schematic, while I see it as a 'high-level-component'.

Same for npn+2 resistors for a pull-to-ground component.

Just read another active topic on multi sheet schematics with hierarchy.... I will try this functionality to simulate the wanted workflow.

Using hierarchy blocks I can do what I want (only make one schematic for level-converter/pull down etc) and use them in other schematics as blocks.

Would be great to allow hierarchy-type sheets to be placed inside a block library and use these hierarchy library blocks in new schematics.

For now I will place these blocks in sheets, and when starting a new design I will start with a template schematic with all these sheets already added.
