bpatcher's inspector recollection

hi
is there a way to have a bpatcher (object) remember the name of the
bpatcher (patch) when this patch is not in the searchpath???

__exemple: a friend sends me his patch – which uses bpatchers – but
forgets to include the bpatcher’s sub-patches. Or even more frequent,
he sends the patch (as text), knows i have the sub-patches (but they
are not in the generic max searchpath)

when i open such a patch i can see (or not see!!) the missing
bpatcher’s sub-patches but have no way to know the name of the
missing bpatcher’s sub-patch

__it would be nice if the inspector could keep the name of the
missing sub-patch

__on the same note, when loading a patch with a missing sub-patcher
(inculded in a bpatcher) an error/warning message in the max window
would be handy

Or there is a way to have those??

thanks

oh, it’s even worse:

since yesterday I am trying to debug a friend’s patch (sending
back-forth new versions, by email)

all things concerning his patch are in a separate folder
(debug-folder), NOT in my max searchpath.

when he sends me a new version (as text) and i copy this text from
his email into max with “new from clipboard”, it loses all trace
(recollection) of the bpatcher’s sub-patches to search; that is even
when i save that patch in “debug-folder” and re-open it.

the only way is to copy the text from the mail, save the text (with
BBEdit in my case) in the “debug-folder”, and then ONLY open it as a
max patch….

hummmmm, in those days of “new from clipboard” it does not seem very
practical….

best
