Yeah, that (that it doesn't makes sense) makes sense.

Ahh, thanks a bunch, that's why i couldn't make it set the "current"  
named patch in editmode, i forgot the .pd extension in the msg.

I see that the editmode status can't be read when it's changes with  
fx. ctrl-e, but it can if it is done manually as demonstrated below  
or in the the attached patch - this might be just what Chuckk Hubbard  
spoke about from the beginning - forgive me (i'm learning)!

[; pd-patchname.pd editmode $1(

[r pd-patchname.pd]
[route editmode]
