Problem with saving patchers

November 9, 2013 | 5:11 am

Hi there

I’ve literally just downloaded the free max trial so sorry if this is an obvious question. When I save a patcher and choose the destination for it to be saved in, it never saves to that file. When I conduct a finder search it turns out its always been saved to:

"Macintosh HD > Applications > Max 6.1 > patches > templates > filename.maxpat"

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

One possible reason: Max doesn’t support filenames and folder names that have a slash (‘/’) in the name.
You could try saving your patch to the desktop and see if that works.

Perfect! I had a ‘/’ in the name of the folder I was trying to save too. Took it out and it works fine now.

Thanks for the quick response.
