    i'm having little trouble to create an external pattrstorage json file automatically.. Although savemode 1 is enabled, i won't be prompted to save a pattrstorage file, when closing the patch. It does save the values, but i can't figure out where and why they are automatically saved.
    I usually use the read message to create and save a pattrsorage file manually, but why doesn't it work automatically?
    thanks in advance b

      I think that it won't prompt you to save to a .json file until you have at least one preset stored! That seems to be what I've encountered. I tried adding a preset object that is bound to your pattrstorage, saved 2 presets, and when I try to close the file, it then prompts me to save to a json file. Try this:
      Max Patcher
      In Max, select New From Clipboard.

      Yes, it worked out. I just put in a preset object, saved some preset and then, voila, i was prompted to save a file, when closing the patch. Big Thanks. B.

      ...and of course, i bound the preset object to a pattrstorage object before saving some presets...
      thank you.
