The Patcher Inspector
The patcher inspector lets you edit settings for a patcher window that control how it will behave when you open it. While some of the settings are similar to the patching settings in the preferences window, patcher inspector settings are applied to a single patcher document.
You open the patcher inspector window by choosing Patcher Inspector from the View menu when a patcher you want to edit is the active window.
