My personal top usability wishes:
  1. “Swap channels" on hardware
  2. Better prevention of cables breaking when moving columns / rows
  3. Link Amp and Cab channels
  4. Editor: when saving Snapshots, save system data too (for Global blocks)
  5. System-wide modifier control, to be able to control Cut, Fat, Sat etc. in the Amp block without having to assign controllers in every preset
  6. Editor: allow selecting a range of blocks, to copy-and-paste across presets or to delete
  7. Separate backup/restore command for FC controllers configuration in Fractal-Bot
  8. When editing a block on the hardware, keep displaying the CPU meter in the top bar (hardware)
  9. Editor: add "Previous Preset" keyboard shortcut or button
  10. Add "Schaffer Replica" trick to Compressor
  11. Add a direct pass-through in Cab block to Output
  12. Editor: select a header (block) in Scene Manager and it not only shows its channel per scene, but also the selected effect type within the block per scene
  13. Add an entry to the Global menu to quick-jump to User Cabs
  14. Option to automatically unlink Global blocks when exporting multiple presets
  15. Add channels or presets to the Global EQ and to Input 1 Gain

Agreed, especially 6.. This would be so useful

Agreed. With previous generation devices, you could import blocks from other patches from the front panel but this facility disappeared with Axe III. What do folk do now to import/copy across blocks from preset A into preset B?
Hardware: only through Global blocks.

Editor: copy/paste, or Block Library, or Global blocks.

I love usability improvements. These are all great.

But Number 6, especially, would be a huge help and time saver.

Is this a separate wish somewhere?

+1 on copying multiple blocks.

Even just putting the blocks down disconnected from everything else except maybe each other, which is kind of the only practical way to do it. That would save a lot of time and screwing around.

I’d add.

  1. Axe-Edit: ability to select a range of per-preset foot switches, to copy-and-paste across presets or to delete

I'd add making a large percentage of the unmodifiable knobs and switches modifiable. I doubt the deep amp params would be useful, but certainly the input and output EQ sliders would, as well as the PEQ knobs and many others in many other areas (LFO Output B Phase, please!!!). Got a taste of it from the recent AxeEdit update's apparent bug allowing it. Would like to see this bug elevated to being a feature....

Still would like 6, 9 too

Be great to change the keyboard commands to the users preferences
