go to your Packages folder and create a new folder. give it a cool name.
in that folder create another folder called "init"
in that folder create a file called "my-objectmappings.txt"
add the following lines to that file:
max objectfile prep prepend;
max objectfile app append;
Thanks from me too, Rob. I reckon this feature should be in "MaxMSP Suggested Practices".
I'm with you, Josh - I like visually neat code (it helps my struggling brain) and will definitely use this to shorten [patcherargs] to [args]. I often have to move stuff over to make space for this (IMO) unnecessarily long object.
