Eclipse Workspace, can you collapse a package directory structure?

I could not find anything when I did a search.

I wish to have a more organized look to my workbench.

Is there a way under the Package Explorer to collapse
similarly named packages, so that I only need to expand them when i want them?

I imported a project and everything is at the same level.

Any suggestions on easily fixing this are appreciated.

Also - any way to import jar files under a folder called jars?
Right now they are also at that same base level.

Thanks!

I use the Navigator view rather than the Package Explorer.

Not sure if this would address your exact issues.

There are 2 options available on the right mouse menu in the package explorer. One is to show packages in a flat view, the other in a folder view. The flat display minimizes the number of items displayed and the folder view shows all the package levels as discrete folders. In either event, the package shows as "hollow" if it's an empty folder and as "filled" if there are one or more java classes defined in it.
