It occurs twice in the definition in the differences document: "Pre-packed Profiles or PPP are combinations of preset groups of assigned keys, to do a quick reconfiguration of multiple keys."
I haven't followed this too closely and don't fully understand the feature, but from the summary above, what about:

KP: Key Packs

I do like KP! And I add KPAC. I drop PRE to last. My revised list in order of preference is now:

KPAC
KP
PAC
PP
PRE
PPP is off the list. I dislike it.

Thx for the comment. I’ll work on a summary of the feature.

APK: Assignment Pack? Then you'd get ASN APK next to each other.

I gave it some more thought and shuffled it again.

ASN KPAC
ASN PAC
ASN APK
ASN PRE
KP - too short. The adjacent names are 3+ letters except α
PP - too short. The adjacent names are 3+ letters except α

If I look at the adjacent texts, there is no confusion and no doubt on the meaning of the abbreviations. From that perspective, if I look at the names on this shortlist, the longer name is the only one which really describes it as KeyPack. PAC looks better, but leaves it open as to what kind of pac it is.

APK is like PPP where I keep om wondering what the words are. PRE does not have any reference or reminder in the name to keys or profiles, so I downvote that one.

I added that last one KPC but the ‘PC’ makes it read ‘KAY Pee See’ instead of ‘keypak’. And space isn’t a problem here. Could do 4 letters.

Of the ones shown in the PNG pic above, all have trivial and easy abbreviations except X.FN and P.FN. So if I try learn from that I could add K.PK and K.PC. Again I don’t like ‘pc’ which has other meanings, so more comments?

I like ASN K.PK best

The 'dotted' format for multiple words is consistent, and I agree it's best to avoid PC.
