embed patch in presentation mode in bpatcher?

August 14, 2011 | 9:47 pm

Okay here is a n00bish & drop dead simple question — is it possible to have a bpatcher object display the embedded patch in its presentation mode? That, is the embedded patch’s presentation mode is shown in bpatcher (just wanted to be clear…derp). How would I do so, (if it can be done)?

…thanks in advance

Just make sure your bpatcher patch is saved with presentation mode on (patch inspector) and your bpatch will show up in presentation mode whenever you open it. Now include the bpatcher in presentation mode (like you include any gui objects). Thats it.

Heh. This is an easy mistake to make.

Just to clarify before this gets too confusing — there are inspectors for objects (such as bpatcher) and inspectors for patches (such as the one inside your Bpatcher).

The "open in presentation mode" isn’t under the Bpatcher’s inspector; it is under the global ‘patcher inspector’ of the patch you are trying to open in the bpatcher. To find it, open the patch that is inside of the bpacther and right click anywhere in the patch that is empty and find the the option on the drop down menu ‘open pathcer inspector’, or do just ctrl-shift-i if you are a cool cat in windows. make sure to save the patch after your work is done, this way bpatcher can open it proper.

Any patch you write can be saved in "open in presentation mode", all Bpatcher does is find a patch at a specified path and open it the way it would normally be opened.

Err… does that makes sense?
