Acetone will soften the glue, as will M.E.K. but with the caveat as added in an earlier post, don't get to carried away with the acetone.
From experience, when I wanted to alter the seat arrangement in the Twist 2, I just used a hair drier, on a gentle heat.
Keep moving the drier about, use a blunt edge knife, or the back edge. Once you have an edge to pull at it should be easy.
Another pair of hands on the drier would be ideal, take your time, but don't get it to hot. Once the patch is off, you can clean the old glue off with acetone, or M.E.K.
Good luck.
Mike

I've always found aquaseal bonds very well to the Innova fabric. I had a leak on the first day of a five day trip this summer. Slowly deflating over the course of an hour, I'd stop and reinflate. Had some trouble finding the leak but once I broke out the soapy water it was easy. Painted the scratch with aquaseal and next morning was good to go. Haven't needed to do anything to it since.
