Right-click (or click whatever you click to get the little menu) on a
patch's background and select Help. This opens
"doc/5.reference/help-intro.pd" which in Pd vanilla lists all vanilla
builtin objects, clickable for further help.

Listing "all available objects" including externals and abstractions is
a bit tricky as this list is changing all the time. For example it
should also include all the *.pd files in your current working directory
which changes everytime you save a new pd file there.
