Is there a way to edit the patch comments. I'd like to be able to add usage notes w/o duplicating the patch?

Otherwise, a dreaded feature request..... I'd like to be able to attach text notes to a patch.

That would be a good idea - an additional user comment field

The patch comment can be edited by re-saving the patch:

  1. Load the patch
  2. Click "Save" to save current preset to disk
  3. The preset metadata window pops-out - this is where you can edit your comment
  4. Click "Save" or "Save as" and overwrite the existing patch

@Robert.P   Dooooh. You're right. I'll give that a go. Thx. Hmmm, means I'll have to figure out a patch backup strategy beyond re-instaling but I need to do that for my own patches anyway.......

@robert-p My understanding is you can't save over a factory patch.  If you want to make a not on the info section, you have to save it as a user patch.

unless this has changed....kc

Kepdx. You're right. Unify prompts you to save it as a user patch.
