bpatcher and presentation mode

    May 29 2008 | 7:03 am
    this is an interesting quirk...
    I have a patch that I've made as a subpatch, with inlets and outlets, to be used inside of a bpatcher. This subpatch looks fairly nice on its own. Its signal flows nicely in edit mode, and the interface is clean in presentation mode.
    The problem arises when I encapsulate the subpatch into a bpatcher. It seems that the subpatch remains outside of presentation mode no matter what I do.
    So this is either a feature request or a bug fix, depending on how you look at it.
    I would be thrilled if I could use the presentation mode layout of my subpatches.

      I think someone already posted about this but here goes again. It's neither a bug nor a feature request since the feature already exists! :) Make sure the patcher's inspector has "open in presentation" checked (the one you want in the bpatcher). To get to that setting I ctrl+click on a blank spot in the patch, or right+click or you can type shift+apple+i or go view->patcher inspector. If you already did that and have the problem that's another matter.....

      ohhhh geez!
      instant gratification!
      I searched, but couldn't come up with anything.
      thanks for the tip!
