1, if i check the help file of live.drop, then i can do it there and seems everything working… But i can drop folders from explorer, not ableton browser!
2, if i drop a folder from live’s browser to my M4L device, nothing happens
3, if i drop a folder from outside live to my M4L device: it handles as it would be a file and says "Media files missing"… looks for a file, what is a folder name :)
is there a way i can drop folder to a live.drop object?
Folders are not supported, doesn’t appear like a bug to me; more something by design.
First the name itself sort of implies its for files only. But if you experiment and try to use the Explorer to drop in folders you’ll notice that although it allows you to ‘drop’ it the object itself can’t really handle it; sometimes even getting Live to trigger errors such as "media files missing".
From the Live browser itself this behaviour is even blocked. So I think its by design and thus ‘files only’.
if you check the live.drop help patch in Max help then you will see it supports folders! even it can output FOLD as a type of received object! And if you drop a folder to that help patcher from a browser, then it will work properly!
