There are limits in File > New > My Presets, a feature I would love to see improved.

If there is already a preset named "Custom" (from some previous session) and you click the "+" button at the top right of the dialog — let's say you want to make something entirely different — you get only an error message about a previously existing preset with the same name. You must rename the existing "Custom" preset, then click "+" again—after which "Custom" is again your only option at the start. Then you have to rename it yet again. Alternatives:

Press "+". The error dialog appears and gives you these options:
  1. Replace the existing preset.
  2. Update/edit the existing preset.

Better (IMO):
  Press "+".
  Dialog appears in which you enter the name of your desired new preset.
  If such a name exists now (ignore case, please):
    Queries:
       Replace existing?
       Edit existing?

And:

Select an existing preset from the graphical list in the main part of the dialog box.
Right-click the preset.
A context menu appears that includes:
   Rename preset...
   Delete preset
   NEW FUNCTIONALITY: Edit preset

Generally the inability to edit an existing preset without having to create an entirely new one is somewhat frustrating and I hope you can consider changing this.
