subpatcher with UI
If I am modularizing large patches, and the resulting subpatchers contain UI elements, does that mean, in order to display those at the parent level, I have to use bpatchers and store the subpatcher as abstraction (file) ?
any other way to have it just contained in the main patcher ?

Yes, you can turn on the toggle to “Embed” in the inspector. To then edit the patch, ctrl-click on the bpatcher and choose Object->New View of “

I am having two problems (i’d go so far as to call them bugs) with the method you suggest:
I have added the following line to my max-keycommands text:
max definecommand B patcher inserttextobj “bpatcher @presentation 1 @embed 1″;
Shift+b now creates a bpatcher with both ‘include in presentation’ and ‘embed in parent patcher’ set.
However, when I right click the bpatcher, the ‘object’ entry in the contextual menu is greyed out (thus Object->New View of “
I have to manual set ‘embed in parent patcher’ off (or 0) then back on again before the ‘object’ submenu is enabled.
I copy and paste that which I want to encapsulate into the bpatcher, add the ui elements i require to presentation, then use the inspector to set ‘open in presentation’ to 1.
When I return to the parent patcher, the bpatcher is not in presentation mode.
If I close theparent patch and reopen the bpatcher is now in presentation mode, as expected.
Any way to have the parent view of the bpatcher update to ‘presentation’ without closing/reopening the parent in which it is embedded?
I am using Max 5.0.5 on Os X by the way.

Ah thank you Stefan. A case of overlooking a simpler solution.
Anyway therefore of defining a keycommand that creates a prototype of an object?
I know it will only save a couple of mouse clicks, but this is something I tend to do quite a lot…

You can’t solve every problem with a single key click. For that one
