pcontrol

April 12, 2008 | 4:26 pm

Someday, in a version > 5.0, it would be nice if pcontrol could open
tutorials in addition to help files. Either via a tutorial keyword, or
better still, having it look for tutorials after it looked for help
files with a given name.

This would allow third party help files to behave more like Max 5 help
files.

Huum,

This made me think how nice it would be to have a simple tutorial patch browser.

Just save the following in Extras for easy access to the tutorials:

#P window setfont "Sans Serif" 9.;
#P window linecount 1;
#P newex 156 143 66 196617 prepend load;
#P newex 156 164 47 196617 pcontrol;
#N vpatcher 20 74 620 474;
#P inlet 88 48 15 0;
#P pop;
#P newobj 156 184 36 196617 p help;
#P user ubumenu 56 124 211 196617 0 1 1 0;
#X prefix_set 0 1 "./Documentation/Tutorial Patches/" 3;
#P connect 2 0 1 0;
#P connect 3 0 2 0;
#P connect 0 1 3 0;
#P window clipboard copycount 4;

There’s a very rich documentation architecture in place for Max 5.
