It also won’t let me set the default project save folders to the folder i want – which is a folder within My Documents. I’m wondering if the two are related. It seems everything sames in an msp tutorial patch folder, which is the first place I accidentally saved something. When I move patches out of that folder, it just moves an "alias" unless I trick it by sending it to the trash then moving it back to a different folder from there.
The problem that is most frustrating, which I also assume is related, is that I can’t access saved patches as new objects, and even copying and pasting them from another file they come up as a grey box instead of white, can’t be accessed, and don’t do anything. I created a new patches folder and set it to that in Max, but it doesn’t seem to be recognizing that folder. I’m on OS X 10.8.2, a retina MacBook pro. I’m very new to Max. Thanks for your help!
Sorry to parrot the last poster, but haven’t noticed any news on this thread in awhile.
Does anyone know a work-around for this issue? I can’t for the life of me figure out how to save my Max patcher files to a location within my computer’s documents folder, or anywhere else for that matter. Every time I save my Max patch, it’s saved within the Max 6.1 application folder. And when I try and pull the file out from this location, it’s only duplicated as an alias.
FWIW, I also specified the folder path where I’d like to save my max patches as a ‘user path’, but this doesn’t seem to resolve the issue.
