It doesn't work. What you show doesn't work since the latest update. That used to be so handy to choose cool, vibrance, fiery, etc. Now it is missing and cannot be accessed, no matter how you illustrate it above it doesn't show up.

Hey, Patrick! In Pixelmator Pro 2.0, we've moved the presets to the Tool Options pane. If the presets section is hidden, click and drag the line above the ML Enhance button down to reveal it.

I've done that and all that is there is a list with Modern Films, Classic Films, Cinematic, Landscape, Vintage, Urban, Night, Black and White and Custom. I'm looking for the vertical row that used to contain the different versions, e.g. Vibrance, Cool, etc. It used to appear in a vertical strip that you could click onto.

This vertical row of presets (a.k.a the Presets bar) is no longer available in Pixelmator Pro 2.0. It's been replaced with the presets browser that currently contains the collections you see (Modern Films, Classic Films, Cinematic, etc.). If you're looking for the old presets though, they are available to download here:

To install the presets, simply drag the .adjustments file to the Pixelmator Pro icon in the Dock. A new, Original Adjustments collection should then appear in the Collections pop-up menu.

The current Shapes and Colour adjustments presets browsers are wayyyyy too small - especially on a 4k monitor.
Can we not have the option of either increasing the size, or, displaying the presets bar?
