Web AppBuilder - Bring back drop down list for grouped widgets

For a very brief time, Web AppBuilder would create a drop down list when you created a group of widgets in the header (see Link 1).  In a recent update, they got rid of this functionality and made it so that the grouped tools are displayed all at once, one-on-top-of-the-other in the side bar (see Link 2).  This new method of displaying grouped tools like bad on a computer, but it also renders the groups widgets essentially unusable on a mobile device (see Link 3).  Please vote to bring back the original drop-down folder structure for the grouped widgets which was much more intuitive and pleasing to look at.

Yes.  This was excellent, worked perfect. It would be great to simply add it back as it was.  I used it to group the Add Shapefile and Add REST Service widgets to create an "Add Data" combo widget. (One of the same name in WAB added in 2.x the AGOL gallery, which while useful is not the same. Would be great to integrate them but nearterm this was my solution and the 1.x Combine widget UI we preferred as well)
