Dict- "cannot read dictionary: -1"

July 6, 2012 | 4:47 pm

Okay, I’m going a little crazy. I’m sure this is a super simple answer, but I can’t figure it out right now.
I’m looking at dict. And I’m basically trying to write a text file, and reference it in the object.

So – [dict text.txt]

When I save the text that i have put inside the file as text.txt and put it in the same folder as the max patch, upon double clicking on the [dict] object, there is no info inside, It has not loaded.
I tried using the import method, clicking on the text file and trying to load it, but I get "cannot read dictionary: -1" in the max window.

Any clues how to get this to work?

Thanks.

Check out the ‘Files’ tab in the dict help file. Basically, you need to use a .json file (or .yml).
