I love using the Pin to Source feature to create floating watches for my variables, but sometimes I make to many and they clutter up the screen.

I was just messing around with pinning and unpinning some variables to the source, and I noticed that 2 of my variables got grouped up somehow, and I have no idea how I did this.

I can't reproduce it and I was wondering if anyone knows what I'm talking about, if they could explain the process?

Pinning multiple properties from the same object will group those properties into a single pin group: Pin Sample

In the picture above I've pinned the list variable (List<string>) and two properties on the list object.

Now that I think of it, it would be kind of pointless for me to be able to group unrelated variables in datatips. – Zack T. Mar 15 '13 at 15:09
