  1. Would it be possible to change behaviour when displaying the 'design unit hierarchy' in vhdl?

Currently it is:


but it would make more sense to change this into


since the architecture defines the behaviour of the entity.

a short example would be

entity enti is
end enti;
architecture arch of enti is
end arch;

  1. The 'design unit hierarchy' view has a bug in the display of packages in my opinion, they aren't shown together.

It looks like


but should look like this, I think



package pkg is
end pkg;
package body pkg_body is
end package body pkg_body;
