Ashlight 1.5 seems to be missing the "New in 1.5" tags

Actually two things after installing the Ashlight 1.5 update ...

First, does anyone else not see the tag for "New in 1.5" - this was in a YouTube video. The idea being you can see what's new easily by filtering with the tag.

Second, I noticed that under the list of presets "Ashlight" itself (the .nki instrument file) is listed! So in Maschine and KK "Ashlight" appears and can be selected, but is not really a preset (you can click the i info button to see it is not). Seems like the installation went wrong but I see no way to remove a preset! Does anyone know how to remove a preset or incorrect entry?

Thank you.

    You cannot delete Maschine/KK NKS Presets from their respective browsers. You can however, right click. "find In Finder/Explorer" then delete the presets from there, rescan and the should be removed from the list. Note however that any Update to the library might replace the presets you removed.

    I see now that "New in 1.5" only works inside Kontakt, but not in KK or Maschine which is too bad.

    It is mentioned in the video here: https://youtu.be/s8lg_GSe4fg?t=193

    I'd still like to know how folks manage the list of Presets / Snapshots - is there a way to remove junk?

    Thanks again.

    Thanks - I can use that approach for real presets. If I do that with the offending "Ashlight" entry it takes me to the Instruments install path, and removing that file would kill Ashlight. So I was hoping for some way to hack the list of Presets without removing the actual file. But this is really not critical - I can easily ignore it!

    Thanks for the help.
