If the history records every movement of every slider as a new history-entry, yes then it will become very confusing very quickly. But the history can consolidate what is done in a single adjustment-type as soon as you move to another adjustment. It doesn’t have to be a complete undo-history. 😉
Then from the history, you can quickly see what adjustments have been made and delete one to see the effect (and hopefully use “undo” to re-apply it 😉 ).
Alternatively, for the presets, how about making this a menu with checkmarks that allow one to see which of the presets have been applied?
Or is that not feasible within the way the program processes those presets?
