The abstraction tutorial doesn’t explain how to create a new abstraction only edit one.

I want to use a saved maxpat as an abstraction…

Also any advice or support in leaning even mastering this program when not very bright and a little lazy,,.

All you have to do is make sure the .maxpat is saved in the search path, and you can type then name into an empty object just like an external.

You should create a folder somewhere and save all your abstractions into, then add it to the search path from Options>File Preferences.
