Hi Robert, I'm not sure what you mean when you say "the .plist it comes
with"; the .plist is inside the Pd-Extended.app file now so it shouldn't
have come with anything that looks like a separate file. If you still have
a ~/Library/Preferences/org.puredata.pd.plist you should delete it (after
making note of any customizations). Then Pd will use its embedded file
instead (which I just checked - it contains 39 loadlib lines in my

The .pdrc works great on OS X, exactly as one would hope now with the
embedded prefs: the embedded prefs take care of configuring Pd-Extended and
my .pdrc takes care of adding the things I'm interested in.
Robert, here's an example of .pdrc (just a file called ".pdrc" that lives in
your username directory)
You can make the file in TextEdit if you're sure to choose "Make Plain Text"
first, and on 10.5 it lets me save it as ".pdrc" with a warning (since the
file will appear as hidden in the Finder), but I can't remember if that
works in Tiger. If not, save it as just "pdrc", then open terminal and type
"mv pdrc .pdrc".
