How can I get tabbed patchers as in help files ?

    Very nice feature !
    I cannot find how it's done. Is it project-related ?

      Can't find anything about this feature. You can modify the existing help files trough edition of the patcher as text but I hope it can be done an easier way.

      don't know all of it, but here's a start:
      1. make a new js object
      2. type js helpstarter.js (whatever name you want to appear in big letters at the top of your patch)
      3. if you duplicate the "basic" patcher & name it something else you'll get a new tab with that name
      3. control-click in menu bar to check/uncheck "Show Root Patcher on Tab"

      It's in the Patcher Inspector of the subpatcher.

      Andrew -
      that's so much easier!
      from what you cycling folks were saying at the expo I thought the tab thing was a mere hack for helper files, but it's right there! (undocumented, to be sure, but there it is!)

      Is it possible to remove the (root) label on the main patcher?
      Tab1(root), Tab2, Tab3
      This feature is great! Thanks

      These tabs are definitely great. No way to change their size or display them at the bottom as well ?
