Yup :P

The “everything just works” aspect of Pd-extended is a double-edged sword..

Easiest solution, I’ve found, is to start Pd with the -noprefs flag and then check the list of objects that can’t create. After than I do a system search for those object help files aka “locate borax-help.pd” and see which external Pd-extended extra folder they are found in. From that, you can build your definitive external list.

> yes I know it sounds weird but here I have to be in sync with some teachers and students at the uni running different OSs and the easiest way is to install pd-extended :( I have a set of abstractions that relay on  extensions included in the extended version. I would have to expend a few days to track down which extensions I use to find a solution ... because I just dont remember any longer which ones I used ...
