I have made a rather massive and unruly patch that nonetheless does what I want it to do, and all along while working on it, used a preset object to "save" where I was at, settings-wise. There are a good many parameters being dictated by sliders for example, where I've got everything dialed in just right. Now, it seems that saving the patch with the desired preset selected does not save it in that state--it defaults to all sliders, etc. on 0 and so on. Not a big deal for me, I just select my preset upon opening the patch and I'm good. However, I want to save this thing as a standalone application, with the default settings being my preferred preset for the whole patch. How does one do this? I know I could, for example, set up loadbang objects/messages, etc. where appropriate to match said preset, but is there a way to simply save the patch with the various and sundry settings just where I left them?
P.S.--I toyed with the "freeze attributes" a bit, but it seemed funky--for example, I froze the setting of a number object, but then after "unfreezing" it could not change it--it was simply stuck (so that approach did not breed confidence).
