Saving / Restoring UI presets in Standalone App.

    Oct 12 2012 | 1:59 am
    Hi all, Im new to Max and enjoying the experience. I have built a standalone app but have had no luck getting user presets to autosave and auto restore. I have read every post on this issue with no joy so must be missing something. I have autopattr and Pattrstorage objects in my patch, with arguments @savemode 3 @autorestore 1 @ fileusagemode 0 but its just not recalling Umenus edited in standalone. The Save and Save As in the menu bar are also greyed out. Why is this? Simply saving a patch in standalone mode seems to be the hardest thing to achieve. Am I missing something? please help, I just want my app to save the state it was left in and automatically recall that state when it opens. Dan

      yes, i do it with the preset object linked to pattrstorage and autopattr, reading/saving from/to .maxpresets files.
      you can't save a patch in standalone or runtime mode but you can have it read/write from the maxpresets file.

      Thanks dtr, could you explain how you get it to read/write from the maxpresets file in standalone. I'm missing something because autopattr and pattrstorage only seem to work when running in max.

      I'm sorry, was mistaken. In my standalones I only use preset objects saving/loading .maxpresets files.
