I recently reorganised my presets in the Windows Explorer module using numbers at the beginning of each preset so they are organised in the panel. But on importing, lightroom 4.3 changes the numbering of my presets and it's just a big mess and I have to start again. Didn't meet this problem in 4.2...

I asked some folks on the LR team. They suggested that the renaming should be done in the app, and this probably wouldn't happen.

That's what I did indeed and it works fine. I'm quite surprised though that LR changes on its own the numbers before each presets. Maybe b/c I have the same presets under other folders and with different numbers...
Thanks

Actually LR keeps the initial names of the presets (the ones they had before being renamed in Windows Exp. and being imported)
