Save dialog.. How do I turn it off??

October 24, 2010 | 3:36 pm

Every time i wish to save a change in a patch, there is a savedialog appearing, with it’s start folder set to my desktop.. it’s an really annoying problem, since i save quite often, and therefore use a lot of time navigating to my max-patches folder..

Can I set max to save without dialog whenever i push cmd+s ?

That should be the behaviour already. Once you’ve given your patch a name and selected the directory you want it to live in once you shouldn’t have to worry about it again unless you specifically pick "save as" from the File menu. Are you sending the message "dirty" or "clean" to [thispatcher] at all? That’s the only situation I can think of that might be having an effect.

I bet you have an "illegal" character in your file name.
