Edit saved Word import options?

I created a customized style import option in InDesign for a client's extensively styled Word manuscript. Now I need to add some additional styles but don't find any way to edit the preset I created. Is the file accessible anywhere? I hate the thought of starting from scratch again. 

 

For my wishlist, it would be nice if the style imports appeared in alphabetical order instead of randomly, probably the order they show up in the source file. It would also be nice to have a larger style mapping window to work in.

The style mapping preset is embedded in the document. It's not sitting anywhere on your drive, but you can just import a new file into that document with Show Import Options enabled, choose your Saved Preset, click on Style Mapping at the bottom, make the changes, click OK and then resave the preset, replacing the previous one.
