PRESET folder organization issue

Lightroom Classic version: 8.4.1
Operating System
macOS 10.14 Mojave
All my presets (LR classic 8.4.1) were organized in the past but for reasons that escape me, the user presets are now all in together with no folders or sub folders. I want to create some preset folders / groups to enable me to find them better. I am unable to find out how to do this. I would appreciate any help that can be given. Thanks

Weird Forum result- The description with this link is wrong!!!

I have tried the Fix Presets Plugin, and it works great! Thanks to John Ellis.
I highly recommend.

"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 am trying to organise the presets folders better but when I right click an existing preset I have no option to create a new folder which apparently I am supposed to have. I have options to rename, import etc but no Create folder. How do I create a folder in presets so I can organise better. Thanks

You need to use the workaround-
Create a new Preset, (call it anything)
And in the new Preset dialog- add to a new 'Group' from the drop-down menu in the Group field.
Now you will have the Group that you can move or add presets to.
A 'Group' will disappear if it does not contain at least one preset. So the 'anything' preset can be deleted after you have added others in this Group.

Hi gavlow, grab the latest copy of your Classic book from the Members Area and bave a read of the Changes appendix. A fair bit around presets has changed since it was first published.
