How do you set up a bunch of develop presets to look as follows:
individual template files
If I create that on disk, all I end up with in LR is the preset group and it's template files.
This makes for a very long scrollable list that I would like to shorten into a more hierarchical style.
Can this be done?
Unfortunately not. A lot of people have requested hierarchical folders in the last 5 years. Please add your vote and opinion to this feature request in the official Adobe feedback forum: Lightroom: Respect Hierarchical Folders of Presets
I don't think Adobe expected people to use presets in that manner. Originally it was a flat list in Quick Develop, so that was a nightmare. I do agree, we need that hierarchy. Weigh in on the post John has linked to. It's seeing more traction in the last few days.
