How to add externals to a standalone app?

Hi there,

I’m trying to build a standalone application and I’m having trouble with a couple of external objects. I’ve tried explicitly including them through the “Include file…” command in build window, but they still show up as greyed-out boxes in the exported application. The externals in question have the suffix .mxo.

Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong?

I have this problem quite a lot. If you’re on OS X, try dropping the externals into ‘Contents’->’support’.

Thanks, Medd! Yeah, I’m on OS X.

Dropping the externals into ‘Contents’ > ‘support’ didn’t work, but putting them in

‘Contents’ > ‘support’ > ‘extensions’


Man, this tip should really be in the official docs…
