Yes, but what I mean is if this quirky behavior is easily fixable, it's 
still useful even though carriage returns don't get saved with the patch. 
Currently, <enter> is mainly used in a msg box after typing a semicolon, 
and when the patch gets loaded a cr is added after the semicolon.  So 
if a new line would be started after the user types <enter> (instead of 
after the *next* character is entered) it would look like Pd is doing 
the right thing in 90% of the cases where you use a carriage return in 
a msg box.

Oh, something related to cr's: it's currently difficult to click 
the right spot in multi-line comments in pd-ext:


This isn't a problem in current version of pd-vanilla.
