Documenting Your Own Patches

Adding documentation is an important part of the process of reusing your work, sharing patches with others, or just making sure you understand what you were thinking two years from now.

  • The most commonly used documenting technique in Max is to add comment objects to a patch.
  • Hints appear in the user interface of a locked patcher. They help explain how to use your patch.
  • Assistance documents the purpose of inlets and outlets in subpatchers and abstractions.
