File Preferences Doesn't Seem To Work….

Jul 15 2008 | 2:46 am

Hi, so I am trying to be able to load files with textedit through pattr presets, like so:

— Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. —

problem is, even though the files i am trying to access are in folders i specifically selected through File Preferences (i didn’t select the root directory, i selected the directory they reside directly in [no pun intended]), i still receive a buffer~ error that the file can’t be open. Why is this??

Thanks for any help.

I edited your patcher slightly to better stand alone, and had no problems. Are you sure there are not spaces in your file names? If so, tosymbol can escape the spaces for you.

found a / in a the name of a directory in my search path.

i was a bit a presumptuous to think the problem was with File Preferences, lol.
