Also, it seems that there are no "open" patches to use to put custom patches. What's the work around for this ?
Thanks in advance.
Are you using Edit&Share software?
The reason I ask what may seem like a silly question (if you are using the software) is that I know some people manage without it...I can't speak to that.
If you don't use the software and can, then I'd suggest that you do.
With Edit&Share, you can copy and save entire patch groups, including saving a copy of the original patch group on your computer (look at the "Library" panel on the left). What this allows is using the B3 loaded with what you want at a particular time, like for a gig. You can have empty slots. For example, what I had done below was create a patch group that had only the things I wanted for a particular band, which was two sets of patches with amp sims and specific song effects, one set with cabinet sims on (for no amp on stage) and a second copy of each with cabinet sims off (to run a bass cabinet).
