any way to acces a patcher globally?

December 16, 2010 | 2:00 am

i have two [p] inside a main patch. i’d like to be able to instantiate one of them inside the other, but since they’re both defined within the main patch, it just creates a new blank patcher with the same name. is there any way around this besides saving the patchers as external files? thanks.

That’s what you do. The files are referred to as abstractions in Max lingo. If you just want to duplicate a subpatch "quick and dirty" you can of course use copy-paste.
