How do you see Patches at forum?

Hello to everybody: I´m new in this community and totally newbie. When I see some threads I see things like this:


I suppose it´s a Max´s patch, but I only see this code lines. How is supposed I can see the patch? I´m using Google Chrome as browser.

I apologize for my bad english. Thank you and best regards.

There should be a ——begin_max5_patcher——– and ——–end_max5_patcher———– lines as well as the gibberish compressed text.

If you copy everything including and between —begin/end_max5_patcher——– and then choose New From Clipboard from the edit menu (or just paste into an empty patcher window). It’s just a clever way of enabling us to share patches without needing to upload files………..very useful!

Also, when posting one of your own patches on here, select everything you want to post and then choose Copy Compressed from the edit menu (not normal copy) and then paste into a forum post. If you don’t use the compressed format it can make threads really hard to read.

Best regards.
