Encapsulated Objects in Main Presentation Display?

April 30, 2008 | 6:38 am

In my main patcher, If have an LED in a "p somethingsomething" patcher, how do I make that LED appear in the Presentation of the MAIN patcher, not just the sub-patcher? I want to start encapsulating some objects to clean up my patches, but if I do that, alot of things that I need disappear from the MAIN Presentation view.

Either use bpatchers, or create inlets and outlets in your subpatcher
so that you can leave your LEDs in the main patcher.

use it as a bpatcher instead, tick ‘Include in Presentation’ for the bpatcher via the bpatcher inspector, add the bpatcher to the Presentation.

Or at least thats how Ive been doing it since M5 arrived.

what about not encapsulating the objects you need to be displayed ? ;)
you can use inlets, send/receive, … to communicate with your subpatchers.

That this isn’t a show stopper is clear. I read it as a feature request,
I second it, and it came up as an idea already.
