opening a maxpatch in edit mode


    Dec 10 2012 | 4:51 am
    I poked through the application settings but it doesnt seem like maxpatchers are designed to open the editing mode. Is there a way to force maxpatchers to open in edit mode?

      yuck solution :D One would think they would put this in the settings. At least I have a master file that I save from to make new projects. I like the idea of expansive work spaces (excel spread sheets) but you do not have this option in max :(
      thanks.

      i think you can save a patch as a template, then you just make File > New from template.

      To have a patch saved as a template, you actually need to save your thing as a regular max patch, then place it in Maxfolder > Patches > Template.

      is there a way to imbed the 2 lines of java into the maxpatch rather than having a separate file?
