open text on Max5

February 28, 2012 | 3:45 pm

i used to uses text in max4, so this looks so weird to me.
and i couldnt really convert this text to max objects.
i did ‘New from Clipboard’ but it is still the same text.

working on arduino, want to have more fun
but no idea how to open this text.
can i get any help?

Do you mean you want to open the patch with Max4? It’s not possible but you could use Fredrik Olofsson converter if you want to have fun with SuperCollider ( -> MaxPat).

Or you could simply rebuild the patch from scratch, with the help of the attached screenshot:

thanks for the pic!! Patrick I appreciate it,
actually I have Max5, it seems like you convert the text into max5 patch.
how did you do that on Max5?
thanks in advance.
