So i have this wonderful patch that ive been building for two years now, Starting back in 4.5…
Now that ive gotten on the 5 bandwagon, Ive been experiencing a really haenous issue that im hoping can be fixed.
I opened my old patch in max5, made changes, then saved it – no biggie.
i also saved a version with no changes – same issue – but sees the error on different line number by about 22 lines.
Ive opened the file as text (very handy BTW) – but dont see the issue that it claims to be having. Also would be very helpful to have a line number readout or EVEN a "GOTO" line number thingamabob…
Also in the process of trying to club this problem with a rock, ive found that I cant seem to copy all the objects from one patch to another. I ‘selected all’, then hit copy – opened a new patcher – then pasted… nothing happened!!!

I had this problem with a patch. It boiled down to an unprintable character (Ctrl-D) embedded into a comment.
You can take the .maxpat file, open it with a text editor, go to the line number and position indicated in the error message, and delete the gremlin. It’s helpful if you have a text editor with a "Show Invisibles" or similar option.
