How could one search for a preset in the preset panel?
 
By scrolling down and opening up folders.... Yes, I know there should be a little filter box at the top.

Yes, a great idea, scrolling up and opening up folders might be another one. Sorry, I meant searching with a search function, a search field, the same method one can search for file names / images in LR.
 
I think by John mentioning a filter box it lacks the feature you desire. I said I wouldn't do another event but couldn't say no to my best friends daughter. I did her engagement shots and that is what I did for the better part of yesterday - scroll up and down. I piped in just to say how much I appreciated Adobe adding Preset Management. You no longer have to scroll through all of them when they aren't required.

Such a filter would be quite nice, I would think.

scroll up and down
The preset panel, yes.

So you can hide the presets not needed, yes. But a filter / search option would be great. Scrolling through hundrets of presets is quite inconvenient.
 
I have never seen a filter but I'm not an LR guru. To hide them go to Presets drop down and press +

Does not work here, but actually I do not want to hide them.
 
Manage Presets does not come up? For 7.5 it should be there unless the Windows version doesn't have it.

Now I see, yes, that item is available, thank you.

You could mark some of the presets as favorites. Right click on the preset and choose Add to Favorites.
Yes, I have done that, thanks.
 
You may not want hide them but never hurts to have stuff stored in the hip pocket.

Yes, but if the hip pocket gets too big...when for special foto series one does not need special presets / preset groups one could hide them and display them when needed. Do not know at the moment how to best handle hundrets or more of presets.
