text to mxb

this is probably very obvious, but i cant seem to figure out how to
get max binary patches from the text people post in this list. pasting
it to a text file and changing the extension (like you do in pd) to
*.mxb doesn’t work, so i am lost.
thanks!

You don’t want .mxb, you want .mxt – and only when a complete patch
has been posted. If it’s just Max clipboard text, then:

i have the same problem – i do what is listed in the tutorial about turning text to max patches: i open a patch as text, delete the text and copy the new text patch in, and no matter what format i save it in (.pat, .mxb, .mxt) it always opens as text. im on windows, btw.
