I created a Preset in Lightroom (ver 11.3.1) under the "User Presets" group.  The User Presets group does not show up in the "Presets" Panel.  Any idea how to get that to show up?

So I may have found the problem.  I had an old copy of On1 2018 on my MBPro with Big Sur OS.  I went through the manual removal procedure as detailed by On1 on their website, then rebooted my laptop.  It seemed to work as my "User Presets" folder is now available. Thanks for the assistance!

Do a Right mouse button click (is that a Mac [ctrl+click] ?) on the [+] on the Presets header and check that 'User Presets' is checked 'on' in the Manage dialog.

That did not work. A User category was not listed.

It would be very unusual to not see a "User Presets" Group header. (Preset organizing in LrC is still a mystery!)

Individual Presets can be 'hidden' if they use a Profile Treatment that cannot be applied to the edited photo (eg. a JPG not compatible with a RAW Profile), but the User Group Title should still be visible.

Have you tried all the often suggested remedies?-

 

1) Reset the Preferences file. https://www.lightroomqueen.com/how-do-i-reset-lightrooms-preferences/

Or in the LrC Preferences dialog > General tab > Hold down [ALT] to see [Reset all Preferences and Relaunch]

2) Un-Install and Re-install LrC from the CC Desktop App.

3) Do a cold restart of computer.

4) Search and expand ALL Preset Groups to try and find the saved Preset.

5) Also try Creating a new Preset Group- (See the chapter in this link)
