Allow a group of one column

Make it possible to group a single column so it can be labeled similar to other groups that contain multiple columns.  For example a table might have the following groups:

  • Unit 1 X vars
  • Unit 1 Y vars
  • Unit 2 X vars
  • Unit 2 Y vars
  • Unit 3 X vars
  • :Single Column that is a Unit 3 Y variable but has an unrelated name

Column groups are handy in tables with many columns.   Making a group of target variables or columns related to a prediction make the tables easy to navigate, and grouping single columns would allow a user to use standard or logical group names regardless of the analysis size.  It also might be beneficial to make groups with no columns, to be populated later.

I agree this would be very helpful! Frequently with large tables, I'm shifting columns around among groups. I often end up temporarily with one (or no) columns in a group -- which makes the group disappear. Would prefer to have it there.
