Hi I am new to Pd, but made some progress since I started a few weeks ago. I am stuck on something that should be really simple. I am trying to make an abstraction. I have made a patch and saved it. Then in the main patch I create an object with the abstraction name (without .pd extension), but whenever I open it I just get a new blank canvass as if it was a new subpatch. I have tried storing the abstraction in various different locations, and modifying the search paths, but no luck.
I am working on Windows 10. and using Purr data
Any ideas gratefully received
