I tried many things, but I still get no connection and an "error: 
unpack: type mismatch" changing any number/slider in cnv-edit.

What I did:

- Open cnv-edit and a new empty patch.
- Put a canvas
- Edited the send-symbol field of the canvas to "test1"
- Edited the receive-symbol field of the canvas to "test2"

Is this what you mean by giving a receive/send symbol? You don't mean a 
pd "symbol" (ctrl-4), don't you?

Then you must type that receive symbol in the

I changed the receive symbol _field_ in the symbol labeled "Receive" 
from "$0-receive-i" to "test1". Is this what you propose? It looks 
strange, I think I should change the send field, but anyhow, both 
changes don't work.
I tried to change the Receive-symbol in the 
"Symbols.of.the.target.object" - no results as well...

Don't worry - your English is fine. I think I'm doing something wrong 
here - it seems like I'm the only one with problems here. Which pd do 
you need for cnv-edit (maybe that's the point)?
