In cases of soundfonts where all the patches have non-descriptive titles by default, especially, I think that it would be ideal to be able to go to an Instrument's page, and rename any one of the presets it's linked to from that instrument page itself. Something a bit like this mockup screencap I've created here:

+1 to this.

I'd also request a feature to rename all the samples accessed right out of an instument, some kind kind of bulk rename but that works out of instrument tab and preserves notes in the name like if it was 0000_c#1.wav it would become something like xylophone_c#1 - user types the name, xylophone in this case. Well, if there are no notes name present in the file name then could it be autogenerated based on root key a sample has?

I was just on my way to suggest this exact feature, only to find that I had already done so

I'll not add the "right click => rename" as described in the first message since you can navigate to the preset with a click and then press F2 to rename it.

But in the version 2.3 to come it will be possible to rename instruments linked to a preset or samples linked to an instrument.
If we rename samples linked to an instrument it is possible to include the root key as a suffix (this root key being the one specified at the instrument level or - if not provided - the root key of the sample) and also the velocity as a suffix, taken from the velocity range at the instrument level.
