Please, if you have done a new filter and have made many presets for it that are over 20 that is the maximum allowed for submitting a filter, DO NOT DELETE the excess of presets over those 20 allowed BEFORE making a copy of the filter.
So this way you can save and keep in a safe place all the good presets you may have done but can´t submit together with the filter.
After you have made the copy of your filter, you can then delete the excess of the presets and have only 20 as required by the submission wizard
The best way to make a COPY of the filter can be done just by saving the filter again with added text to the name of the filter.
So you can have the "great filter " name and could save it again as for example
"great filter with presets"
or "great filter complete"
or "great filter full"
or "great filter backup"
This way then after the filter is published in the FF library you will be able to share the excess of presets in the forum and so we will be able to have many more useful presets made by the author and the person that knows best how the filter works and what can be done with it.
HOW TO SHARE THE PRESETS ?
Well I have put a thread for this with the great help of Morgantao
How to be able to share FILTER PRESETS in the forum of FF filters ?
Thanks for your help
SPECIAL MESSAGE TO GHISLAINE
You will now be able to make your beautiful and wonderful spirograms designs and make them available as presets so we all can enjoy your great and lovely designs you make so well.
So if you make the filter and have 50 presets, PLEASE, do not delete the other 30, just make a copy of the filter and then share the other 30 here in the forum.

Before you created this thread, I have already uploaded my new filter (a copy of a new filter on another name). When I opended the copy, I was surprised to see that I had just one variation as the defaults preset. But I'm smart, because I have created another 20 presets so that will give you 46 (in the original) + 20 - 66 presets.
I have also save in xml the 46 presets. So you will have only 20 variations tomorrow (I hope), + the 46 in the xml that I will put on the forum when I'll get the number of my new filter.
Is this ok for you ?

Thanks for the news Ghislaine and great that we will have 66 presets instead of only 20
I have also updated my Spirograph filter and now it will work right as it should have done form the beginning AND will also share many more nice and useful presets that could not fit with the bad 20 preset limit of the library.
Thanks again for your help and for keeping those lovely, beautiful and well done presets you make.
