Photoshop: Display the exact filter name rather then "Filter Gallery" when filters are applied on a smart object.

I value everyone's time so I'll go right ahead to my proposal. While I don't agree with the "Filter Gallery" change, I can understand (to some extent) why you guys did this. But PLEASE show the exact "Filter Name" when it's applied on a smart object. I generate a lot of my textures in Photoshop and I often change the blending modes of the smart filters. With CS6 I end up with situation like this:

Smart Object Name
-Box Blur
-Filter Gallery
-Filter Gallery
-Filter Gallery
-Filter Gallery
-Filter Gallery
-Filter Gallery
-Filter Gallery
-Filter Gallery
-Noise

each time I want to adjust blending modes for specific smart filter I have to double click the "Filter Gallery" and see what am I editing and trust me when you're working with 12k x 12k canvases this tends to get a "bit" slow and not exactly fun.

Thanks! :)

Hi, is it also the case if you use the preferences to display the filters in their old menu structure?

I guess that you are aware that, once you stack filters (apply glass, and diffuse glow, for instance) in Filter Gallery, they won't be displayed with their individual names under the smart object.
