Apologies for the newbie question, but I’m unsure about the best way to neatly package up a patch that contains references to external patch files. I have a simple patch that refers to a single external patch, and I’d like to be able to share it with others without too much hassle.
I think the simplest way is to put all abstractions you need in the same folder as your main patch and share the whole folder
give a friendly name to the entry patch like "_MAIN" or something similar to help people to see it
if you are using a lot of abstractions it could be better to put them in another folder but you will have to add this folder to your max search paths list
I hope this helps (and hope my english is understandable…)
If you have a larger project, you should look into "collectives". For something like what you mention, though, I often end up just copy and pasting the abstraction into a patcher object. It would be nice if there was an option to save abstraction (and js scripts) with the patcher, like with colls.
