When trying to open a file that´s e.g. called “Test (String).v4p” the patch doesn´t open at all or the resulting patch window is blank.
If vvvv is not running, doubleclicking the file results in an empty patch window.
If vvvv is already running and you use ctrl+O to open the file nothing happens at all. There is also no error message in Renderer TTY.
Dragging the file onto an other open patch window works as does ctrl+shift+o.
Renaming the patch to “Test.v4p” or even “Test ().v4p” resolves the issue.
hi bjoern. noticed the same thing (but i’ don’t know if there’s a bug or a feature, because the helppatches open correctly. Anyway when you load the patch vvvv loads it, but it’s minimized and another empty patch is created runtime.
if you press alt+r can see the root of vvvv, containing your patch and the empty one, plus the standard things. and if you rightclick on the patch you loaded it opens. really strange
