do you have a demo patch?

I guess it should be possible to do it with textfile and some load/save messages, I'm actually doing it by using [get], [set] and [element], it a bit complicated... Would [sublist] simplify this task? How can we make list fields?

[sublist] is all but guaranteed to crash Pd.
