    Wish Edited Warning

    It's because you have the Global setting for Default Scene set to "As Saved"... So when you change from the (saved) default scene for the preset, it has now become changed... Because if you save it now it will load a different default scene.

    Setting Up External Tap Tempo?

    I'm not sure. I've only ever configured a stand in switch once just to explore the option (I have an FC-12 so I'm covered on switching options), and that was a dual button switch, so my experience is different. If you had a generic switch to test with first it might be easier to rule out...

    Keep in mind that the H9000 is an effects processor... The Axe Fx is an amp modeler that is also an effects processor. It's prime directive is to accurately model tube amplifiers and any other functionality is secondary. Even though the effects are world class, they are still secondary...

    Mooer Shrooms footswitch toppers... do they fit FM3?

    Sort of... They are "over" the ring but there's a decent amount of space between the LEDs and the toppers. I don't think you'll have any issue detecting the LED state or color, though.

    Availability to the distributors outside the US might coincide with that or not... You might be correct. Also, yeah, having someone that can buy for you is definitely an option... Although you would also have a challenge with that if you had a warranty issue. ;)

    Is FM3-Edit supposed to re-read my presets every time I open it?

    No... The reading is FROM the FM3. Into memory. Memory is very fast. Edit: To be fair, I'm making assumptions based on a long career with computers. I don't know the actual details, but I'm fairly certain,

    Is FM3-Edit supposed to re-read my presets every time I open it?

    Why? It is reading the preset names from the FM3 into memory. I don't think the disk is relative at all.

    Wish search preset by amp type

    I was assuming the OP would have a good idea of which of his own presets might use a given model and further assuming he was asking about factory presets or 3rd party presets. Maybe a bad assumption... As far as hygiene, I name my presets to include the amp model in there :)

    FM3 Firmware Release Version 1.05

    Because you changed the preset... Assuming you have the Default Scene global setting on "As Saved"? In that case, if you change the scene and press save your preset would have changed its default scene.

    Wish search preset by amp type

    You can have 2 Amp blocks each with 4 channels for 8 possible amp types. You may find presets where a particular model is in one or more channels but not actually "used"... So it might not be as helpful as you think ;) For example, there are probably a lot with 59 Bassguy.

    Make sure you don't cross midi cables with audio cables... And try to avoid them touching. Try changing tempo in the Axe Fx (front panel Tempo button). If the clicks follow the tempo then it's probably some crossover interference.

    Setting up expression pedal to auto-engage wah

    You can't. Modifiers settings are not global... You might be able to use the Batch Setter function of FracTool to set it up across your presets but the FM3 has no "native" ability to do it.
