Separate non-visual components in the form designer
When you have forms with several TActionList, TPopupMenu, TDataSource, and other non-visual components it's kinda hard to organize these components in the form. Harder if you have several tabs in this form.
It would be very nice, if theses components could be put in a separate area, so you could easily organize all the non-visual components.
It would be nice also if they could be grouped into categories, example, all the TDataSources grouped in the same line, and so on.

This shouldn't be a separate tab, as this would require to open a separate tab. There is plenty of available space in the form designer to create an area where non-visual components will be automatically inserted.
I don't like the VS approach either. I would suggest having a new tab sheet next to "Code", "Design" called "Data" where you can place your non-visual components.
I agree with fabricioaraujo... Not to mention that DataModule should be used do separate non visual components (at least datasets and datasources) from the form.
I don't have votes left, but YES!!!
Please split the non-visuals like in Visual Studio.
Please do not give me the "Use TDataModule" answers!
If they do like VS does in Winforms, is better this to be left as is.
