Pattrstorage Morphing tricks

    Righto -
    I have finally learnt a little bit of pattrstorage trickery, preset interpolation being the current fave, but I would like, if I may, to ask one or two questions:
    I have a set of number boxes that are set with the mouse. I would like to have a "current state" that I can morph into a "preset state". The "current state" should be automatically saved while editing the values with the mouse.
    I tried this using "numbox->T B->Store 0" and then interpolating between 0 and 1 (the preset state) but of course this will make the numboxes move, overwriting preset 0 on the way.... Is there any workaround for this? I imagine there are loads... Or will I "have to" use a "Store 0" button? That solution will definitely be doable for me, as I wouldn't mind mapping a controller button to this.
    Also, are there some good strategies for "saving last state" as Stefan hinted elsewhere? I am looking for any and all hints to making the whole pattr system click with me.
    Andreas.

      Possibly you could use the mousestate object to automatically store your current state each time you release the mouse button. Save it into some dedicated, not-otherwise-accessible pattr preset (maybe 0 would be OK, but I'm not sure, maybe you'd need a higher one). This would be fine for your "saving last state" question too.
