Import Files Without Creating New Tab

I'd love the ability to import files without creating a new part studio or assembly tab.  As an example, I often model a PCB, and then download dozens of components from manufacturers to place on the PCB.  I'd like to keep all these components internal to a single part studio, rather than having all of them clutter my workspace with tabs.

An alternate implementation might be to add the ability to hide tabs or make folders full of tabs.

    @ patrick_dingle799, To get all parts in one part studio,all parts should be in one file(like exporting assembly file will contain all parts in one file).
    You can follow below work around if you are getting all parts in different file.You need to upload it to Onshape one by one and it will create number of tabs.To avoid more number of tabs in delivery document,you can upload it to new document- create assembly in that document-then you can export the assembly and import it to delivery document.

    @patrick_dingle799  You can create folders full of tabs. This was added with a recent update.
