After upgrading to the new version of Polyphone, I saw on the front page that editing banks and presets can be performed on multiple selections now. However, it seems that trying to edit preset numbers (even on bulk selection), doesn't work as it does with editing bank numbers. Best example is when selecting multiple presets at once; the 'preset up-and-down' buttons are grayed out.

Also, when trying to edit single presets, the preset will jump to the first available preset instead of the next sequential preset and simply swapping the two (i.e., if there are 50 presets total, and I want to move preset 6 to preset 7 and 7 to 6, changing preset 6 will jump it all the way to preset 51 instead. This way, I have to shuffle things around repeatedly if I find new instruments to add to a soundfont.)

If it was intended to be this way, then please forgive my rant. :P I love Polyphone and it has served me well for years!

It would be really convenient if we could switch between these two preset display modes:

000:000 grand piano
000:001 bright piano
008:000 spatial grand piano
008:001 spatial bright piano

to

000:000 grand piano
008:000 spatial grand piano
000:001 bright piano
008:001 spatial bright piano


Also, swapping presets would be much easier to deal with, as there are many wrong numbers on my soundfont that I want to fix easily. However, it goes straight to the next preset, which could be annoying. Hasn't happened to me yet, but it could. I agree.

You're doing better than me. I can't even find where to edit the bank and preset numbers at all now.

EDIT: OK, I found it. What's it doing way down there? :lol:

The new location of the bank and preset can be at first very confusing, but I'm now used to it.
