Every new BIAB version adds a XTRA style pack. Now we have four XTRA packs.
In the stylepicker, the styles relative to a XTRA pak are just labelleled 'Xtra PAK' in the Set# column.

I think it would be worthwhile for the users to better identify where these styles come from.
So rather than having the 'Xtra PAK' label, we could have Xtra PAK1, Xtra PAK2...

It is simple to implement, and it is time to do that now, because there are not so many Xtra PAK so not so much extra work would be required.
It adds also more professionalism in the general management of BIAB data.

Hooray!

Definitely +1

That naming convention continues to generate problems, which will only get worse.

Thanks A-David.
That is 'simply' common sense, rigor and organization.

I just hope it could be implemented in a next patch.
