Remote devices presets not loading properly

I am using a UC-33 and various other controller devices to control the mixer, Vsti’s and so on, which require me to configure them under devices > remote devices > generic remote on Cubase Pro 8.5

All well and good, until I try and load up a previously saved preset (via import). Nothing happens! This means I have to reconfigure fairly frequently which can take up to an hr of assigning and reassigning and needless to say doesn’t improve my workflow situation one bit!

Also is it just me or does it take a very long time to open the file browser menu compared to previous versions?

Any help would be much appreciated.
