cool, I also made a comment about it on the pull request, so if you accept my documentation fix, you can also sort this other issue out.
I also fixed some typos, using *"* instead of *`` - *please check my last pull requests at https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pulls for these things, they're all minor cosmetic fixes like that, plus this documentation fix. After the release, I'd like to propose other documentation fixes, in which we should better discuss and sort it out first, as an outcome of long discussions we've been having. cheers 2017-08-11 0:34 GMT-03:00 Miller Puckette <m...@ucsd.edu>: > Yes - Pd looks in the directory of the patch whether or not '.' is > specified. > Adding '.' makes Pd look in the current directory of teh Pd process.
