Cut it out, and in Max select "Text" from the New Menu, then paste it in,
then save it, close it, and reopen it as a regular patcher (with Open, not
Open as Text).  Likewise, open any Max Patch with "Open as Text" and you
will get stuff like above.

You are correct this is a MAX patch as a text file. If you select 'open as
text'
in MAX you can view your own patchers like this.

To use ones posted on this list serv select 'new text' in MAX and paste the
text
in. Then save it, close it and open (not as text) it and the patcher will be
there!

Just my 2 pennyworth on the subject,

I think its fine for Stephen to sell his externals he has obviously put an
enormous amount of work making it worth FAR more than the 50 dollars he is
asking for. If you are just using 'type' then you are perhaps getting poor
value
for money but as whole package it is wonderful.

It is worth noting that he is offering technical support for the 'new'
package -
something I will expect when my payment gets to him. Paying him puts him
under
an obligation to provide it, in the past he could just ignore any help you
may
have wanted - how much is that worth?
