Hi Shane,

I notice that the more presets I make the more confusing it starts to look in the pop up menu.  When you select either a new or replace Instrument layer, the list is white text on the black background.  I organised my presets into smaller groups eg. Pad, bass, key etc.. but when you select your instrument, then subgroup and finally the list of your presets, it all looks a bit confusing. 

Would it be possible to make the second sub-menu and downwards a different background colour so that you see the new selections easier when they pop up over the first menu text?

This is a great suggestion, and I have put it on the to-do list, but I think the more basic problem is that pop-up menus cease to be practical once the number of selections/levels gets large. Ultimately we will need a different way to choose these presets.

Yes, our lists get rather difficult to read when it becomes a layer over layer of text... I'd like it to be more clear to understand in the future, for sure!

Fuzzy search dialog opening when one start typing (with open menue), could be partial solution, i think..
