How can I see the full device view for impulse presets?

Hi all,

I'm new to Ableton and am following the intro "Creating Beats" lesson in Live Lite. 

My problem is that when I open up the Backbeat Room preset all I can see is the macro control panel, not the full Impulse device view -- so I can change volumes of the different components of the kit but I can't access the full range of Impulse controls.

This seems to be same for all presets, except for the Soft Saturated one. For some reason if I drop Soft Saturated into a track I get the full device view, with access to all the Impulse parameters.

How do I unlock this view for all other presets?

    On the macro control panel, just left of where the device's title appears is the Device Activator button. Below that are three more buttons: Show/Hide Macro Controls, Show/Hide Chain List, and Show/Hide Devices. Click on Show/Hide Devices, the bottom button, for the full device view.
