I lost all my custom Favorites, Arps, Presets, Folders etc etc
Luckely i have backups, and multiple machines and macbooks, but still...

Im not sure how to backup the Favorites etc in Nexus 4 before updating, but i suggest you find out or wait for a fix.
Windows:

In N4 they were stored in: C:\Users\Public\Documents\reFX\nexus
In N4.5 they moved to: C:\Users\Public\Documents\reFX\User Content\nexus

Mac:

In N4 they were stored in: /Users/Shared/reFX/nexus
In N4.5 they moved to: /Users/Shared/reFX/User Content/nexus

Installing N4.5 via the cloud should move them to the new location and set the path so Nexus knows where to look. The idea is you can move them to Dropbox, Google Drive to get them to sync between computers instead of using the reFX sync.

A few users are reporting they didn't move. Did you uninstall 4 before installing 4.5? Can you let me know if the new content folder exists and if there is anything in it?
Thanks for this discussion. Only after seeing this I realized my favourites, etc. also disappeared after the update.

I followed the normal update process through reFX Cloud to update 4.0.9 to 4.5, but the previous folder content was not moved to the new folder. So, it looks like an installation/update bug to me.

Now, I have replaced the folder in the new location with the previous folder, which restored my favourites. Is this OK to do or are there any implications of doing this?

The new wavetables sound great, I hope Refx continues to open Nexus up, more control,means more customers. Great Job Refx

A few suggestions:

1. IMO, the font size could be made a bit bigger for all the main tabs (librarian, routing, modulation, arpeggiator).

2. Regarding undo/redo, when changing presets, the preset name in the top bar changes, but the change is not reflected in the "Presets" column of librarian. A minor thing really, but just thought to point out.

3. This thing has been bugging me a bit ever since I got Nexus4. Can the search bar be made a little taller and wider (essentially bigger) and also positioned a bit better? I think the search bar, the search history arrows and reset button (optionally audio preview on/off button and volume knob as well) could be placed above the tag area above the presets column. Please see the screenshot below.

I don't know if you noticed yet but fiat money lost a ton of it's value and many people have raised prices for all sorts of things. It simply doesn't buy as much as it used to. Besides that, a lot of work and time goes into these things and not many can afford to work for free.
