i don't even know how to properly title this, because the problem is so weird. So i'll try to explain:
If I already saved a patcher and then hit Cmd+S (Save shortcut), then the "Save As" dialog appears. This is extremely painful as i'm having this tic to always hit Cmd+S while working. So basically Max doesn't realize that a file is already having a path it's saved on. Also Max seems to have trouble with paths in general. If I created a patcher that i want to use as an abstraction in another patcher Max just doesn't find it! (Filepaths are set, of course). Also if I try to load buffers (even with a read message and I choose the file directly via dialog) it just does nothing!
I was using Max 6.0.8., updated to 6.1.1. yesterday (in an attempt to fix that problem). Also I already reinstalled MacOS (yes that's right, the problem continued afterwards) and the permissions are all set to read and write. So everything should work just fine, it just doesn't....
