opening the same instance of a bpatcher at two different places

    Hi,
    I would like to show the SAME instance of a bpatcher at two different places. Is there's a way to do that?
    In edit mode, you can right click on a bpatcher, and select 'Object-> New View of "myBpatcher"'. That does exactly what I want. But I can't find a way to get that functionnality out of the edit mode.
    Is that (or something similar) possible?

      Not as far as I know.
      If you're using the bpatcher as an interface for something, you could use the same send/receive for the input and output, and [prepend set] every value in the interface.
      You can save this and open it in a bpatcher twice:

      Hi Bas,
      Yes I thought about that, but as it is possible in edit mode, I hoped an 'unrevealed' message to max allowed that.
      You're right, using send/receive is a workaround that works well for simple max patches. But I got a lot of UI objects.
      Having twice the same instance would be much smarter. That would even allows you to have some MSP stuff in your bpatcher (even if it not a really good design) without any impact on the dsp cpu..
      So if that "new view" is not possible, is that a choice, or just an unimplemented feature?

      If I understand correctly what you're after, you could also use the 'bindto' attribute of [pattr] objects. This way you could duplicate your gui elements somewhere else in your patch and bind them to your [bpatcher]. That said, if there's a lot of [bpatcher] you want to duplicate, it requires a lot of patching.
