5 years ago, poster Sean Phillips first suggested this idea. Adobe has officially marked it as "implemented" - however, it is not implemented. Preset subfolders are scanned by LR, however, directory structure is not respected beyond the first level.

This makes preset management kludgy and inefficient. Please correct this by simply allowing the LR preset hierarchy to reflect the subfolder structure in the LR develop preset folder tree.

Have you used this method? It separates stuff out really well. And as you might remember, I'd been asking for this since before the feedback site even existed.

To be honest I hardly use presets anymore. I have about 5 that I use all the time and dozens of others that are still there from ancient times but that I never use. Thinking back on it that's probably because they were so hard to find for so long that I just stopped bothering...

And thinking about it I'm not even sure what you mean by "this method"?

Inside each preset is a line with 'Cluster' in it. Fill in the other side of this to create a dedicated section.

Ah, OK. No I haven't done that myself, but the presets I have currently installed are clustered nicely. And if I remember correctly you still can't add more than one level of hierarchy with this. Is that right?

Technically you've 3 levels there. The Cluster, the Preset Folder then the Preset. But the separation makes them immediately obvious, versus how they used to be on top on each other.

I suppose. Still not how I would prefer it. File system hierarchy makes so much more sense to me.

And the fact that clusters can only be added by editing the xmp boggles the mind.

With the change to XMP and the presets now being shared with Camera Raw, the ship on that has sailed. The current implementation is far better than what we had, but I feel enough people don't know about the mechanics of it.

I did check in Camera Raw, just in case it was available there, but no.
