I’m afraid, there is currently no automatic way to recreate UI tree structure, as displayed in Spy, in repository. There is already a feature request for this idea, so you can vote for it here... ... folders-fo

To be quite honest, I personally don’t see usefulness of this idea? Spy may show a nice looking UI tree, but the final xpath is, in most cases, much shorter and many elements are not represented in the xpath at all. So recreating complete UI tree structure in repository could be very confusing and only make the repository unnecessary complicated.
