Not Holding Selected Folders and Pre-sets do not work.

I was using SF Pro 16 and began to notice after I found a folder and applied an effect, I went back to hear another but the PATH was EMPTY, I have to go find the folders everytime I want to hear an effect. NOTHING holds the files open. It all returns to BLANK paths and wrong directories. I also noticed effects were loaded in MY DOCUMENTS. Acoustic Mirror FX and other FX folders are in MY DOCUMENTS...Why? I have removed the software 2x and the installer loads files in numerous folders.

What is the folder name in your My Documents where the effects are?

. . . . after I found a folder and applied an effect . . . .

Can you clarify what you mean by this - you cannot apply an effect to a folder.

AudioPluginUnion and Impulse are the 2 folders that were installed in My Documents folder.

If I could post some screen shots it would explain it better. When I am working in SF Pro 16 and I need to apply an effect to my voice, I open up the PATH (example I open Acoustic Mirror) I apply an effect to my voice and when I try to add another effect, When I open Acoustic Mirror Path again, I have to go and find its folder again.

Have you tried the preset drop-down context menu? The VST preset UI was changed to work like the Direct X presets do. My (VST) 'Audio Plugin Union 'Dynamic EQ' presets and others are there and it returns to the same (Documents) folder when re-queried.
I cannot duplicate a preset abnormality in 'Acoustic Mirror'. Some of what that was previously mentioned does not apply since Acoustic Mirror is a Direct X plug-in.
