feel like a n00b again: presentation mode Q:

    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?

      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...

      This would make designing modular units a lot easier for me, so I am still hoping to find a solution somewhere.
