Ability to group condition blocks so they are treated as one.
Example: when using the Multi-Condition Group, let's say you wanted at least one condition to be true, except that one of those conditions can only be defined in terms of three condition blocks, i.e. you want to group 3 conditions to be treated as one.
In effect, allowing AND and OR operators to co-exist.
There's probably a more elegant solution.

If you want 3 conditions to be true just place them without the multi condition block.

I was trying to figure out how to use blocks to combine "OR" with "AND" operators.

So I want to say
condition
AND
condition
AND
condition
AND
[condition OR condition OR condition]*

*where one of these OR conditions could be comprised of several conditions.

Ok I see where you're coming from now.

As says the FAQ > Migrating from Wealth-Lab 6 > "I'm building a strategy from Blocks and missing OR Divider":

QUOTE:
It's not gone, just different. Now you drop another Entry/Exit block with another condition to be ORed. For more info, see Building Blocks > Building Block Rules in the Help Guide.

The OR condition - i.e., creating a new Signal block - is probably the least intuitive Building Blocks operation.
Given the design, I'm not sure what the best way is to solve that is, but WL6's OR Divider was intuitive.

I guess the specific problem I need to resolve is not simply "how do I create an OR", but how do I create a Multi-Condition Block in which one of the conditions is a grouped set of conditions.

It's just currently not possible da42007. To do more complex groupings you'd need to resort to a code based Strategy, where the sky's the limit. By nature, Building Block Strategies will have limitations.

Okay, thanks Glitch.
Somewhat of a shame because Building Blocks are extraordinarily feature-rich.
I was hoping to create an all-block strategy, but that's a tall order for converting V6 strategies that have been enhanced over time using code.

I think that if a MCG could contain other MCGs instead of only Conditions then that would achieve what you put out there above. Technically possible, you can submit. #FeatureRequest for this if you feel you really need this functionality.
