Hide (root) label on tabbed patch…

December 30, 2011 | 5:24 am

Hi all… is it possible to hide the (root) label on the base of my patch? I have figured out how to change names and all that, but for some reason I can’t fine the (root) text/option anywhere.

For example, my patch shows:
tab1 (root), tab2, tab3, tab4

Anyone? Is it in the "patcherargs"? I’ll even take a hint… in the right direction…

Although none of this is officially supported outside of the help files, you can hide the root tab by right clicking on the grey empty tab area along the top and un-checking 'show root patcher on tab'.
