This should work and I am not sure why your not seeing that. For example:
chr1 artemis gene 210 720 . + . ID=x
chr1 artemis mRNA 210 720 . + .
chr1 artemis exon 210 280 . + . Parent=x.rna
chr1 artemis exon 291 720 . + . Parent=x.rna
this uses the Parent qualifier of the mRNA to join the two exons.
The mRNA's are greyed out but you can still select and edit them. There
should be an option to change this (and there is with chado database
entries) so I will include that for GFF entries. When you right click on the
feature display there will then be an option to 'Show/Hide Features...'.
This will appear in the next development release.
