Looking for an object that can neatly format and store text (for commenting)

October 12, 2012 | 11:38 am

The comment object is great as I can write text, save my patch and not have to use pattr objects to recall the text.

Are there any core objects that can provide better formatting than the comment object, such as tab indentation and combinations of font types?

It would be useful if I could just write a lot of neatly formatted comments of various font styles, save the patch and then when I reopen it the comments are still there. I do not wish to create multiple comment objects, just use one object to automatically store/recall all formatted text.

i don’t think such a thing exists. What’s the issue in using multiple coment objects ? you can have all quite a lot of formating this way… but maybe there’s an external, i don’t know. You could also use [jsui]…
