can’t look at the patches right now since max isn’t on the computer im using – but if you want to make "global" presets, so that all the bpatchers are affected, try dropping an [autopattr @autoname 1] object inside each bpatcher, then drop one in the mother patch. Then create a [pattrstorage] in the mother patch, and voila, all objects within all bpatchers and within the main patch are contained within the [pattrstorage] object. check out the tutorials/help files on these, they are very easy to use and much more dynamic than presets.
the autopattr in each bpatcher was the missing piece for me.
I found the other posts regarding bpatchers and pattr, and now that I’ve got something that works on a basic level, I feel like I have a good footing to start learning all of the options for pattrstorage.
