How to open BUILD window for patcher/project with NOMENU ?

    Jul 28 2013 | 5:39 am
    Hello I have a project where the main patcher (and all other patchers too) has "nomenu" flag.
    Bad thing is, that using the "build standalone/application" from menu gives you a BUILD WINDOW with many options (scripts etc), but that's inaccessable now for me, as i have NOMENU everywhere.
    There is a function with same name "build standalone/application" in the project window too, but that one doesn't open the BUILD WINDOW, it only asks for a filename and that's it. Is that a bug?
    How do I get the build window when using the project window / when unable to use the one in menu??

      Not sure that I entirely understand this but can you create a mechanism which toggles the menu state, loadbang it to what you want at load but turn it off when you are building?
      If that's not it please send a stripped down example into support

      i think this is what Andrew is alluding to--

      Sure, I could create some special mechanisms to do what MAX is ABLE to do in one case when and not in the other. But isn't this a bug? Why do I get the build window when I click the "build ..." function in one place (patcher) and not when I click it from project?
      I attached detailed description of what I mean.

      So there's two issues-- one is the inconsistency between two different ways of building a standalone-- (which means i never make standalones from the project window). I agree it's strange and annoying. The other is the 'menu' issue, which is explained/solved via the 'toggle mechanism' answer.

      I agree that there should be more consistency. I'll ticket this.
      In the meantime though - you're going have to hack your way through it.

      Hi there- I have the same problem except I don't get a build window at all on either menu , i've tried using the "windows flag menu" but that doesnt change anything. Sorry to reopen an old thread with some probably simple questions..
