Lightroom: Suggest the last name, or recents, to name new preset more easily

I very often create presets for each project that are nearly the same and I just change the last few numbers (letters) in the preset name.
Example:
“20 reception01 WB 5600+21”
“20 reception01 WB 5300+21”

Is there any chance that LR will offer me the last one or more saved names, when I am about to write a new preset name? Now I have to copy the last preset name or write down the name right from the start, which is very annoying.

So why not to offer the last one or more saved preset names in a clickable pop-up bar? :- )

Good idea. Work-around for now: copy to clipboard, then paste n' edit..

That'll get ya the most recent one, unless you have a general purpose clipboard utility, which remembers multiple.. (I recommend AceText).
