I've tried to install fxpreset packs but it doesn't seem to work. I use effectslab with my new dual G5 Powermac. When I hit the button import fxpreset and have located the files I have to highlight all the files and press "open". I can't just highlight the preset pack and press open. And after that nothing happens.

My guess is that the preset files are getting unzipped somehow during download. The file you import HAS TO have the suffix " .FXpreset_pack " If you have multiple files then something has gone wrong. Check to make sure your browser isn't automatically unzipping them when it downloads.

Ok, my browser (safari) unzips the files automatically and I can't find any option to turn the unzipping off. I've also tried to download with explorer but the site doesn't show properly with that browser (using a mac) and I couldn't access the preset library.

I've managed to solve problem 1, but now there is another problem. I downloaded firefox and everything went fine, it didn't unzip the files and effectslab could import the fxpreset. BUT, now I can't access them inside the program, they don't appear in the effects browser. If I import them again the program says that they are already there...
