Hello, i'm very disappointed in how to Manage Lightroom Presets, how can you make a Gropes and make sub folders let's say Gropes Name: name of the company and subfolders with the names of the creator? is going to be fixed ??
You cannot make subfolders. Lightroom only supports one level in the presets group. You can create a group when you create a new preset.
I don't think it is going to be fixed, because it is not broken. If you'd like to suggest a new feature for Lightroom Classic, then do so at: https://feedback.photoshop.com/topics/lightroom-classic/5f5f2093785c1f1e6cc40872
Don't create a new thread, though. I'm sure this has been asked before. Find that request and add your vote.
No, that is not correct. The only thing that John's plugin does is reinstate the link between preset groups in Lightroom and preset folders on disk, like it was prior to Lightroom Classic 7.2. But you are still limited to one hierarchy level. What the OP wants (preset groups per company and then subgroups per creator) is still not possible and never was possible.
While you can't make nested groups (folders), you can arrange the groups into clusters, which are separated by grey lines in the Presets panel:
See here for details on how to do that:
For nested groups, please add your constructive opinion to this particular feature request:
and be sure to click Like and Follow at the bottom of the first post. That will make it a little more likely that Adobe will consider implementing the feature and you'll be notified when they do. Product developers rarely participate in this forum and won't see your feedback.
John, on your wesite I see this:
Fix Presets is a free plugin that works around a number of limitations and bugs in Lightroom’s Develop presets, most of which were introduced in Lightroom 7.3:
I'm confused, what does the above bolded text plugin feature actually do inside LrC?

The web page is deficient in describing it, though the plugin itself is more specific:
So if you create a parent folder My Company with subfolders B & W, Color, and Film, the groups created in the Preset panel will be top-level groups named
My Company > B & W
My Company > Color
My Company > Film
Obviously it's a palliative, but some number of users have found it useful (it was suggested by a user).
John, thank you for the explanation. It's not what the OP is lookin for, but still may be useful.
Thank you all for the help!!
