I want to make my own material blend and multi material blend  nodes and would like a new preset become default one when I drop the nodes in  graph pane.    Is there a way to do so ?

Could you explain please.  Whatever I set in default setting  the buttom 'update' is gray. I can't sae new default .

 

Fotr example I want MAterial blend  node to  have 3 textures : base color, normal, specular  input/output only.   I can save it as a  new preset   but evry time I drop the node it cames in its default state and I have to switch to 3 textures  preset evry time.

Save this copy sbs

 

Use it in your new Substance graph, it should open with just the inputs and outputs you set.
