Simple question (moving dependencies into a folder)

So I’ve got a patch a-brewing that’s got lots of polys, and a couple pffts, and my folder is getting a bit messy.

How is it that you make it so you have just one file, and then a folder (“lib”) with all the dependencies?

I opened the dependencies inspector but can’t figure out how to move the files there, or if that’s even the right thing.

Is it building a collective? I thought that might be it but I think that makes a single file with everything in it, (where I want the toplevel patch, and then the rest in a folder).

Sorry for the silly question, but it’s a bit difficult to search for as the actual name of what I want to do is what I don’t know. (Can’t exactly search for “putting things in a folder”)

Check out the patch in Zachary’s post here which uses [filepath] to add files in child directories to the search path temporarily.

Seems less than perfect since apparently it doesn’t work on the first loading of the patch when opening Max. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen some patches that are just a file and then a folder with the bits in it.
