How do you rate or remember patches in Komplete Kontrol?

Hi all, I'm new to NI and used to rating/ranking patches out of 5 when browsing a new collection. Is there a way to do this in the Komplete Kontrol plugin, and if not, how do you remember what patches you like best?

    There is no "rating", but hover over the preset with the mouse and a Faded start appears to the right...click the Star and it is flagged as a favorite...the to recall only favorites, click the Star next to the search box and only "Favorited" presets will be displayed...

    Brilliant, thanks @Blindeddie - it was my eyesight, I couldn't see the stars...

    Very small user interface...can make it difficult to see things!!!

    Rating is better though, a binary like/don’t like is almost useless

    I agree that rating is better @Kymeia, but I'm very glad that we at least get like / don't like. Without that you'd need to try out every patch every time...

    What I'd really like would be:

    1) A qwerty keyboard key to press to select a patch to trial in Logic (equivalent of pressing the 4-D encoder). I have just started a new thread asking this: https://community.native-instruments.com/discussion/9450/how-do-you-select-a-patch-via-keyboard-the-kontrol-plugin

    2) Actually I just found a means of doing my second thing: "Press and hold SHIFT + press the 4-D encoder." to add a favourite via an NI controller.

    I guess that using 2) it would be a little harder to rate favourites. Perhaps Press and hold SHIFT + press and turn the 4-D encoder..? But you can probably see why they went with the simple like / or not option for easy hardware integration.
