MAX 8 patches saving as MAX 7 files

    Not a big issue but I've just noticed that when saving new patches in MAX 8 they are saved as MAX 7 files. Anyone know how to fix this?

      I know I'm being a fuss pot but it shouldn't be happening.

      What do you mean with saved as max 7 files ? open patch as text and read the header { "patcher" : { "fileversion" : 1, "appversion" : { "major" : 8, "minor" : 1, "revision" : 6, "architecture" : "x64", "modernui" : 1 } are you getting this instead : { "patcher" : { "fileversion" : 1, "appversion" : { "major" : 7, "minor" : 1, "revision" : 6, "architecture" : "x64", "modernui" : 1 } Can't believe that, maybe your problem is file association, that by whatever reason assignes .maxpat to max 7, so that it launches when one doubleclicks maxpat ?
