I'm working on a patch at the moment using purest_json, which works well once it is up and running.
A weird thing, though: the purest_json objects will not load when I open my own patch first. If I go into the externals folder and open a help file for one of the objects (rest-help.pd, for example), the objects will load perfectly. I can then close that patch and re-open mine, and the objects will work fine.
I have a [declare -lib purest_json] object in the patch already, for what it's worth.
I have to repeat this process each time I quit and relaunch PD. I don't have to do it for any other externals I have installed. Any ideas how I can avoid this?
