    Often I'm editing presets while playing/testing.
    When hit a switch on the AA to switch to another preset, the focus in the editor stays on the open preset.
    It would be nice if the focus shifted automatically to the newly selected preset.

    P.S. Had to switch to Internet Explorer to be able to post this (again)…

    The editor is a one-way communication arrangement. On first connecting it loads all the data from the AA to the editor. Everything after that is only the editor sending data to the AA and not the other way round. Consequently any changes made on the AA will not be seen on the editor but will be saved if you hit save on the AA. However, if you edit on the AA and hit save on the editor whatever is in the editor will be saved to the AA and not take in to account any tweaks you may have done locally on the AA.

    That would be a nice thing to fix. If the AA cannot send to the editor, maybe have the editor poll the unit to see if there are changes and then syncs them?
