Limit Sends in M4L Devices to One Device

Hey, is it possible to limit the send and receive objects to only act within the device they reside in?

Right now when I load the same device 2 times, the send object in the one device is affecting the object in the other device as well.

Put "—" (three dashes) in front of the name of your s/r objects. If it’s named "foo", make it "—foo". It’s all (very well hidden) here : http://cycling74.com/docs/max6/dynamic/c74_docs.html#live_symbols

@cycling74: please, this question get’s asked like every week or so, which is a strong sign, that it might be hidden too well inside the documentation. Who would search for a document called "Using Symbols in Max for Live", when he has this problem?

Thanks David! You’re absolutely right, just having for example a m4l tab in the sends helppatcher would be helpful and easier to find.
