From the pedal preset list, I see that I can switch from algorithm to algorithm with a simple tap. BUT the pedal has to be in Active mode (Active LED lit) for that to work. If I use the footswitch to take it out of Active, then there is no way from the pedal preset list to switch back to Active. You have to drill down into the preset to get to the Active button. This would be a lot more useful live if there were a way FROM THE PEDAL PRESET LIST not only to switch from preset to preset, but ALSO to go Active/Not Active. I have a number of presets that I have to switch off right after a part, then change preset and switch on and you can't seem to do all that easily from the pedal preset list. If you can do this already, please tell me how. 

Yes, there is a way to do this already. 

If you want to switch presets on your mobile device during live performance, you should use a local preset list (those lists from the phone logo in Preset List screen). Because in the local list, you can set the default bypass status for each preset. Therefore, you should be able to create a bypass preset at any position (you may choose whatever algorithm and rename the preset to BYPASS). When you want to bypass your H9, just click that bypass preset you created in the local preset list.

However, (thanks to your feedback!) I found there is a bug when you save the bypass status of a preset. But you can still get around it. Just remember change some other parameters/values besides the bypass status, otherwise H9 Control would think you didn't change anything so it wouldn't save the preset. We'll fix this issue very soon in the next verision of H9 Control.
