Ability to scroll through presets in Lightroom Develop Module

I'd like to propose an enhancement request to Lightroom Classic specifically but ideally for all of the Lightroom products.

I have a couple of hundred presets in LR.  Ideally, I'd like to have the ability to scroll through the presets and have the image displayed as if the preset were applied.  It could work similar to how the you can scroll through the blending modes in Photoshop.

I know that you can hover the mouse over a preset and it will show you the image with the preset applied.  This is a poor workaround, particularly if you have more presets than can be displayed in a single panel.

Thank you for your consideration

Hi Jack,

Thanks for the suggestion. I would like to understand your use case. For a single image you scroll through or preview each preset one by one over 100s of preset list. When you say scroll, are you referring to using mouse scroll wheel? 

Thanks,
Ganesh

I would like to expand on this idea by being a little more specific.  I would like to be able to scroll through the presets using the cursor keys (up and down).  

Using the mouse to do it works, but requires a little more dexterity and attention so that you don't inadvertently skip one because you've rolled the mouse too far.  As a result, you have to keep shifting your eyes between the preset list and the photo.  If the cursor (arrow) keys are used, you can keep your eyes on the image and be confident you haven't skipped over one while scrolling.

Thanks.
