There is: just don't do it :-) It doesn't make sense to use $1 in the
context of a top-level canvas (until we get
I guess you have an abstraction that should also work as a standalone
patch. In that case, just don't use creation arguments. Instead you can
get the creation arguments from the canvas with [args( -> [pdcontrol]
and pass them on to the relevant objects via messages. It's awkward, but
there's no other way.
The actual problem is that we don't have a way to *forward* creation
arguments. Ideally, we should be able to do something like
[cyclone/play~ $@], where "$@" would mean "all creation arguments". In
case of a root canvas, the list would simply be empty and you wouldn't
have any trouble in your object to distinguish both cases.
