Show on parent patcher tab when "parent" is a sub patch

April 1, 2014 | 12:19 am

Hi list,
I’ve just discover the great showontab argument.
But it seems to consider that "parent" patcher can only be the main patcher.
I’ve got a patcher called "son" in my main patch and I try to set "show on parent patcher tab" on the subpatch "grandson" witch is inside the patcher "son" so that is appears in tab when I open "son".
But when I load the main patcher, I’ve got tabs ("main patch" and "son") on the main patcher screen.
Is there a way to get arround that ?
thank’s for help !

here’s a patch to demonstrate that.
I click "show in parent patcher tab" in Grandson inspector and leave this checkbox unchecked in the other patcher.
when re-openning, the checkedbox is checked (but grey, ignore click) on parent inspector, and checked in son inspector.
is it a bug

ok, that’s a step.
does anyone here can reproduce that too ?
does it work another way for anybody ?
voluntary testers needed ! (it’s simple and fast)
