(latest Max 6 and OSX)
I have one specific patch that when I load it into a bpatcher, the Patcher File and Argument(s) options grey out. What does this mean?! (And how do I fix it?)
I’ve tried copying the contents of the patcher into a new blanks patcher (in case it’s something to do with the settings in the patcher inspector), but I get the same result with the new renamed patch.
Old news now, I know, but I am constantly plagued by variations on this problem — especially when duplicating bpatchers — but I can never get anything failing consistently enough to post here. It comes and goes in mysterious ways. I deal with it by putting my arguments in before I choose the patch to load, so if the args field locks, it won’t matter. Ugly, I know…
really annoying, yes.
my workaround is to do a [script sendbox bpatchername args arguments] to a [thispatcher] object located in the bpatchers parent. haven’t found a better solution as the bug is completely random.
