RNBO Patcher Bottom Toolbar
The bottom patcher toolbar in RNBO is similar to the bottom toolbar in Max patchers with a few exceptions.
Most icons in RNBO's bottom toolbar will look familiar to those in a standard Max patcher—such as Lock/Unlock, Enable Operate While Unlocked, Patcher Windows, Show Objects Over Connections, and Show Grid. Other icons—Disable Auto-Compile and Manual Compile—will be familiar from the gen~ environment.
New icons and icons with new or different behaviors are explained below:
When auto-compile is disabled, you must click this button to compile the current RNBO patch. The RNBO patch must be compiled for previewing the changes in Max or for exporting to the target platform using the Export Sidebar. If the RNBO patcher is already compiled, this button is greyed out.
Each time a RNBO patcher is changed (objects or arguments added or altered), the patcher must be recompiled. When the patch is compiling, the blue build status icon will appear and the manual compilation icon will turn yellow. A blue progress line will extend across the bottom toolbar to show the progress of RNBO patch generation and compilation.
The RNBO errors icon informs you when there is an error in the exported RNBO code that is preventing a compile.
Clicking on the error alert icon while an error is present will open the rnbo errors window. The lines of code that are in error are highlighted with a red exclamation mark icon.
This icon allows you to disable and enable the auto-compile behavior of a RNBO patcher. When enabled, any changes to the patcher trigger an automatic compilation attempt. When disabled, you must click on the Compile icon directly to the right of it to compile the patcher code.
The save snippet icon allows you to save a group of highlighted objects and their patching connections to the RNBO snippets folder. This can be accessed using the Snippets Browser in the Left Toolbar of RNBO patchers or from the right-click contextual menu.
See the snippets guide for more details.
