P: Allow Manage Presets to move or process a batch of presets instead of just one at a time.

I have a large number of presets, as I'm sure many others do as well. Often, I have to organize them in a certain way or move them into different folders. Currently, LR allows only one preset at a time to be moved or renamed or deleted. With hundreds of presets, this becomes an exceedingly time-consuming task. It would make a lot more sense to be able to select all the necessary presets and apply whatever action is needed to all of them at once. I hope you can implement this soon. It would make Lightroom Classic a lot more efficient and user-friendly. Thank you.

In the meantime you can use Fix Presets by @johnrellis

 

To refresh presets you can create a new preset (put it in the "User Presets" group) and delete it soon after...it will be faster then restarting LrC.

Thanks, but Fix Presets doesn't work with Lightroom Classic 12.4. I see no Plugin Manager. 

That's why it's so important for Adobe to include better organizing tools within LRC. 

Batch moving presets is a basic essential requirement sorely missing right now.

Fix Presets does work perfectly with LrC 12.4 

I used it today several times.

 

I do agree we should be able to edit presets in batch or move them in batch...it has been asked already many times.

 

To delete Presets in batch you can do it using Finder/File Explorer.

 

Renaming presets in batch alas is more complex.

Thanks but how do you work with Fix Oresets in LRC 12.4. How do you install it? I can't see my way to using it and would like to give it a try. 
Thanks again!

1. Download a Plug-in 

2. Unzip it ans store it to a location of your choice (I put the Plug-ins that I use in a folder next to the LrC catalog itself)

3. Within LrC you must click "Add" in the Plug-in Manager and choose the Plug-in you want to install.

4. Then in Library or Develop do "Plug-in Extras > Fix Presets

 

 

@johnrellis has written in his website all the instructions and info you need to know to work with his Plug-ins.
