you can have some ‘sort of’ save as… in a max patch/collective/application.
if your using [autopattr] and [pattrstorage], for your preset saving. it always [unless you have saved before exiting] asks for you to save your settings, either in XML or ‘the other format which i can not remember’ when you exit the program.
hope that helps, there are a few helpful patches with the preset saving method using [autopattr] and [pattrstorage] posted around this forum or even in the cycling tutorials.
I’m having problems trying to do a similar thing. When a user quits my app (standalone runtime on both Mac and Windows) I just need to delay quitting long enough to bang a couple of messages to be sent out to a hardware unit so that it functions correctly without the application running. However, closebang did not do the job in time I assume because it had no effect. I thought about using the key object and looking for Command Q, but then I would have to account for the user manually selecting quit from the menu and I can’t find any mention of this in menubar helpfile. Any help is very appreciated, thanks!
