Creating my own documentation files

Hello,

I am thinking about creating course notes for my students directly as Max documentation files so that these could be opened directly in Max and would allow me to insert links to patches.

Is there a text editing tool making this both possible and easy?

Thank you in advance.

Aren’t the reference pages just xml files?

max 5patchesdocsrefpages

If you open one of them with a regular text editor (note that you kind of answered your own question..) you can fairly easily decipher the structure and create your own files.

If you open one of the existing XML files located in patches > docs > refpages > max-ref you can make modifications in a text editor of your choice. It is fairly simple to do. You can then put a “; max showdoc objname.maxref.xml” message in your helpfile and it will open the max help browser et voila!
