    It would be very helpful to be able to drag presets in the list to re-order them.

    Massive plus one for this, I'm used to using Line 6 HD500x editor and really miss this feature, along with 128 patches being nowhere near enough, had it 2 days and already run out of space (currently auditioning and experimenting with loads of different sounds though).

    I would also like to be able to edit without the unit attached via USB

    I agree 100%. It's such a pain in the backside if I have 50 presets in a specific order and want to slot a new one into position 5 so I have to shuffle everything from 6-50 down one to make way for the new preset at 5. Even an ancient old Digitech GNX3000 had the ability to drag and drop patches into new locations when re-ordering them so it surely can't be beyond Atomic.

    As an IT guy, I see possible problems implementing the drag-n-drop interface. The AA isn't the fastest at storing patches via USB. If you have a drag and drop interface, you have 2 possible implementations:

    1. Drag into a slot, and reorder the patches below it.
    2. Swap the patch locations.

    Reorder: Depending on how the patches are stored in the firmware, it could either be very easily done (via pointers) or very difficult (manual moves).

    Swap: I think this could be implemented rather easily. If I take patch 127, and put it at location 1, it now resides at location 1, and the previous patch resides in 127. The only resource necessary would a "ghost" patch location, where only the firmware can assign the value. So, when you take patch 127 and drop it on location 1, it stores location 1 patch in the ghost, puts the dropped patch from the 127th slot into the 1st slot, and then stores the value in the ghost slot to location 127.

    If the patch locations are NOT using pointers, you would have to do a swap for each until patch 127 is in location 1.

    Hopefully, they use pointers :)

    Drag & drop reordering is a feature I've enjoyed in the Line 6 Edit tool for my Pod HD300 for 6 or so years now, and that system has nowhere near the compute and memory power as the AA. In my book this is an essential bread and butter feature for any modeler editor, especially if you gig and need to reorder patches to make it easier to get through your set list with minimal tap dancing. As an IT guy myself, this is a software problem that they can easily solve in the editor, even if the way they write patches to memory on the unit is not already optimized for this purpose.
