I can’t count how many times Max has hit some sort of bug and crashed on me while working on a new project. I think it’d be nice if Max would:
1.) Keep track of the (compressed) contents in open/unsaved patch windows
2.) Upon load, detect if Max was *properly* closed or not
3.) In case of a previous crash: provide the user with a dialog, asking them if they would like to restore any previously unsaved windows
… Because there are occasions where saving a patch to disk isn’t always immediately necessary, or even a forefront thought. Especially during those big moments of inspiration where you lose yourself in "creation mode".
