Are you aware of the Copy, Paste, Swap, Insert, and Delete functions under the More menu in the preset list grid screen? You mentioned there no being a delete, but there is one there along with other functions that make reorganizing presets easier. 


3.  Why not have drag-to-reorder?  Dragging a preset around in the list could reorder presets in much the same way that Apps can be rearranged on the screens of an iPad. (Or, if you prefer a list view, then in the same way that favourite phone numbers can be rearranged).



We might add a drag to reorder as well at some point. We added the copy, paste, and swap functions first because that sort of interaction model works well on all devices including phones. Drag to reorder will be a bit clumsy on phones with the small screen particularly if you’re trying to drag say preset 5 to position 25 which is several pages over.

Regarding the “clumsy” aspect, it isn’t so bad with apps going through different screens as long as it’s only 1 or 2, but I see what you mean about position 5-25. Therefore, add the new function of drag, but keep the list option for greater distances available as well. That would make for the best of both functions 😉
