Another comment about the documentation in Max5: there are no
informations about [thispatcher] messages like clean, write, patcher,
dispose, loadbang, etc. (not speaking about topmost – thanks John!).
The .maxhelp is much moe complete than its reference file!
Interestingly, the contectual menu assistance shows, like in Max4,
only 3 available messages: anything, end and savewindow. Which are of
course the only one described in the reference.

Thanks Jeremy, but those are messages I can see in
thispatcher.maxhelp, and I use them with [thispatcher] since ages. I
can’t see anything about dispose, dirty, etc. in [patcher]’s ref
If you search for dispose in Max5’s documentation, it will indeed
return the [thispatcher] help file, but you won’t find anything about
dispose until you open the .xml source to discover dispose in a tag.
What about my recent previous message about #0 in the documentation?
Max5’s documentation system seems so strange to me…
