      There is no message to Max which does this.

      That's not what Emmanuel Jourdan wrote more than two years before here: https://cycling74.com/forums/exporting-patch-as-image
      There's a message to Max called exportimage:
      exportimage message to max with syntax ";max exportimage patchername [pathname] [dpi] [x y width height]" where params in brackets are optional, patchername is a name previously used for the openfile message to max to open a patcherr, dpi is the resolution of the resulting image, and x,y,width,height specify the portion of the patcher to export.
