Simple Interface Question: subpatch and presentation mode

I have my main patch in which I’m building an intuitive user friendly presentation mode.

In this patch, I want to use several subpatches to make things clean.

There are some GUI objects that are in my main patch that appears on my presentation view. I would like to move some of these into subpatches to make my main patch cleaner.

My question:

Is there a way to move an object into a subpatch but keep it in the presentation view of my main patch?

Thank you.

Unless you use the bpatcher object, no. But that’s what the bpatcher object was made for….

Oh nice, thanks

The inspector of bpatcher allows me select another max patch. Is it possible to load a subpatch?

Also, the track in the bpatcher appears in edit mode, is there a way to have presentation mode?

Thanks

Check “Open in Presentation” from the bpatcher’s Patcher inspector (in the view menu).

I got another question which is not really related but I don’t want to make another thread.

So I’m currently using a preset object as some kind of clock (each presets are automatically loaded in an order)

This clock system is inside a subpatch and I want to control elements that are in other subpatch with the preset.

I tried using inlets and outlets but it doesn’t work.

Is it possible to use a preset inside a subpatch to control some GUI objects that are in another subpatch?

Thanks

One word: pattr. Time for a little quality help file perusal. Or, if you’re one of those weird people who reads, refpages and tutorials. Smile

If you’re jonesing for the ability to have a graphic UI, you can set an attribute that associates a preset object with a given pattrstorage object.

You’ll like it. Being able to recall things in subpatches is just the beginning.
