I am new to Pd
I have now written a few patches and when developing /editing them I find myself getting confused between sub-patches and abstractions. When editing a subpatch then only thing letting you know its a subpatch is that on the window heading the title does not have the .pd extension - when you save or save as, it applies to the whole patch. Also any changes only affect the one instance of the subpatch if it occurs multiple times on your patch.
On the other hand changing an abstraction might have unintended consequences in other patches using it, so I tend to keep renaming every-time I edit and end up with multiple versions, which gets confusing.
Is there anyway to make the distinction between a sub-patch and abstractions clearer?
