    I´ve just realised that the editor doesn´t show the name of the current preset! If you don´t have a list made by your own, or memorize the presets you have in the box, you´ll not know which ones you have loaded.

    Pretty easy to fix this... isn´t it?

    By the way, this little box sounds amazing!

    EDIT: of course I´m talking about the Firebox...

    I would love the ability to make set lists from the presets and scroll up and down

    on the subject of naming presets (this is trure for AA3/12 not able to comment on AFB) there is a limit to the number of characters a preset can be named. The device screen is limited to 12 characters but retains more characters in memory than displayed (around 16 i think?). The editor retains the longer names i.e. 20+ characters, during edit-sessions, which are truncated (as they exceed the device's limit for preset-name length) only being noticable when recalled from the device on a new editor session.
    summary:
    Not much point in giving your preset a name longer than 12 characters for live use purpose. Longer names useful during editor sessions but dont go crazy with extra-long preset names!

    This would be a great (and hopefully simple) change.

    Wonder if the reason this was not done is because the preset (name) can change. IMHO, a bit of inconsistency here is fine (are more tolerable than having to jump back and forth to view the names on the editor screen).
