Hi,

I have a group of presets for our school work for 2021 in its own group folder. We are changing our colour workflow management and this means I will have a lot more presets per school, and I was hoping to put them in a 2021Presets/ParticularSchool format, creating a sub-group for each school so I don't end up with a preset list that scrolls until the end of days.

Can that be done?

Thanks

Craig

Unfortunately not. You can only have one level of groups.

But you can put them into separate "clusters", which are separated by grey lines:

You'll have to edit the presets' .xmp files and change this line:

Code:
crs:Cluster="Jefferson High School"
