Description

There are two issues with reset:

1. It is duplicate functionality. Basically selecting the default preset from the preset menu is the same function.

2. The button is tiny and very close to the preset button.
Countless times I spent minutes creating a preset, e.g. on the equalizer, and then missed the preset menu by a few pixels and clicked the reset button, trashing all my work. There is no undo for this!!

Suggestion 1: loose that button entirely (my suggestion). It is duplicated functionality and used to rarely to omit the single level on indirection imposed by the preset menu when invoking the same function by other means). This will also unclutter the UI.

Suggestion 2: make a copy on the history stack, so the user can select the previous state to get back to the settings the had before pressing reset.

Suggestion 3: implement undo outside of the history stack, so pressing reset can be undone.
