that's exactly. it is actually a symbol, but I can't explain it that well  
as the pd masters. that's also what is written in the canvas properties

no, it is much simpler than that. the patch is made so that no editing is  
necessary. you type the name in the symbol field and press enter. that  
would be
- click on the "Receive" field
- type test2 and press enter
- do the same for the send field, when necessary (with the other name)

if you changed the properties of the symbols you have to put them back in  
order for the patch to work. as I said, it isn't necessary (and not  
wished) to edit the patch to work with it.

I work with 0.39, but that's not the point (it will be when I implement  
Frank B's sollutions). actually this is fully compatible, no exts as well.
