The Patcher Inspector

The patcher inspector lets you edit settings for a patcher window that control how it will behave when you open it. While some of the settings are similar to the patching settings in the preferences window, patcher inspector settings are applied to a single patcher document.

You open the patcher inspector window by choosing Patcher Inspector from the View menu when a patcher you want to edit is the active window.

Getting information about a Patcher Inspector setting

  • Position your cursor over the Setting column of any row in the window to see the setting's info button. Hover over the button to see a brief description of the setting.
