pattrforward not working in a poly~ ?

    May 13 2006 | 10:32 am
    I use pattforward in a patcher loaded in a poly~, and I need this
    pattforward to control a named object in the main patcher (outside the
    poly~) but I can't find the right message for pattrforward to tell him to
    control this object ...
    (please see this patch : p
    maybe pattforward is not supposed to work inside a poly~ ?...
    or maybe there's a "special" message to go outside a poly~ ?...
    isn't the main patch the "parent" patcher of this poly~ ?
    bug or feature ?...
