something like command+F in patches?

    May 26 2006 | 8:27 pm
    I get an error message with a project, that says "error: pass no such object" - the problem is only that i can't find any pass~ where i forgot the "~". But there are quite a few subpatches and abstractions... Is there something like a "find and replace" command as editing function in max, that might help me find the object that causes the error?

      There IS a find and replace feature in Max... and it's Command+F (on the Mac.) It's a bit week in my opinion, and I'm guessing you'vre allready tried this....

      you could try editing it as a text file.

      Save the patch as text, and open into the texteditor of your choice. I can recommend TextWrangler for the Mac which is free and powerfull.

      Hi, i did inspect it in text format, found no "pass" object (with the "~" missing) and still get the error first thing on startup of the patch...

      Just to keep you up to date and to make a fool of myself: the mysterious "pass"-object has finally been found: while debugging the project, i found it inside an abstraction - it was hidden behind the menu bar... shame on me. Sorry for having bothered you.
