[Update: When creating a preset with the same name as an existing one, clicking Replace doesn't overwrite the old version.  See here for a precise recipe:
-- John Ellis]

I use to create a new preset for every customer-shoot.... say NAMEXX.
When customer is on site i shoot colorcards and grey for LR even finer preset-setting....I measure and than always saved overwriting the NAMEXX preset that was created before actual shoot... LR warned that preset already exists but after confirmation overwrites and from there the new-adjusted is used with AUTO-IMPORT reading from the incoming NEF file.Since latest updates this does not work seem old one is not over-written or at least not used from there onwards (flushing ??)....  please check !
Ps Also in line with this i would LOVE to see the mouse-scoll-button activated rolling though existing presets while selecting the one for AUTO IMPORT.
TIA.. Gerard

Lightroom Classic CC 7.5 was released today and should address this issue.  If you don’t see the update in your Creative Cloud App, hit the [Ctrl/Cmd]+ [Alt/Opt]+[R] to force a refresh. 

Give the new version a try and let us know if it solves the issue.
