I am a long-time maxmsp user, but I mostly use max4, or, when using max5 I use it in a very max4-way. Now I started a new project, using max5 and willing to really use the presentation mode features (which is supposed to be the big change, since the "audio engine" is the same isn't it??) ; so i have a few basic questions :
_does an object to be included in the presentation view have to be on the top level on the edit view, or could it be inside a sub-patcher? I guess it has to be on the top-level, i wish i was wrong
_when using b-patchers, is the visible part of the bpatcher treated as a whole ? I mean when my bpatcher shows, say 3 sliders, can I have all 3 on the edit level, BUT only one of them on the presentation level? Again, I am afraid, not
_finally, if I want to have some annotations (comments), fancy panels, or someting on the presentation level, it seems I am obliged to have them on my edit level as well.... not very practical... ok, I can reduce a panel, but a text is a text.....
_when i have a comment on the edit level, i can only have ONE copy of it on the presentation level (would be handy to have only one "volume" or whatever, but to be able to place it in different places of the presentation
that's it - for the moment
