making max find externals automatically

hey, I’m unfamiliar with using external objects. I’ve put some in my folder aplications/max 4.6/cycling ’74/externals
The object loads and functions fine, however I’m not able to make it appear in the list of objects when I creat a new one. I tried putting the externals folder in thsearch path in file prefernces, and also tried file -> install, but it still won’t appear.
any ideas on how to solve this?
thanks very much
tom

Unfortunately, the “New Object List” is not generated dynamically. You can edit it by hand. The procedure is explained on page 17 of the “Max46Fundamentals.pdf” manual.

Good luck,
