feel like a n00b again: presentation mode Q:


    Jun 12 2008 | 10:27 pm
    hey,
    is there a simple way of making subpatcher UI objects appear in
    Presentation mode?
    Staying with the Reaktor thought, "sub-interface objects" in Reaktor
    appear with a small frame around them indicating the hierarchy.
    Right now the only way I can see it working is by send/receive pairs
    from the parent patch... but that kind of negates the idea of
    presentation mode, doesn't it?
    Andreas.

      I think that you add the patcher object, open the
      subpatcher window, Choose the Patcher Inspector
      and set the Open in Presentation Mode attribute.
      Did you try that?

      This is already a FAQ, but thinking about it, maybe there would be a way
      to get new users around it better:
      One possibility:
      A Max preference which would allow to set that attribute in a given
      patcher automatically in the moment you assign the first object to
      presentation mode...
      In addition, if the first time you do that, a little pop-up will ask
      whether to set this preference, or if you would like to do it by hand in
      the inspector. A little check box "don't ask again" checked already...
      Other possibility:
      Whenever you assign the first object to presentation mode, it will ask
      on save if you want that attribute to be set or not with a check box
      "don't ask again"...
      That way everybody will learn by doing...

      yes, I did try that, but that sets a default action to perform every
      time you open the patcher (whether it opens in presentation mode or
      not), it doesn't make a multislider inside [p test] show up in the
      parent presentation mode, unfortunately.
      This would make designing modular units a lot easier for me, so I am
      still hoping to find a solution somewhere.
