Absolutely love the deck!

Is the idea for the latest releases that I am to supply my own text file of choice? I noticed that only 1.3 still functions when I drop it into a track.
I enjoy it plenty-I look at it on my Templates master track, delete it, then I'm off to the races...

Hi bastienhild,

I'm still getting buttons for "read from a text file" following this "template".
The last version to include an oblique deck for me was 1.3
Do I have the right of things? Should I be looking for my deck of choice at this point, or am I not saving the files from your download link correctly/completely?

Hi Braduro,
Many thanks for your feedbacks.
Yes I stopped including the original "oblique strategies" deck in my patcher because of copyright wonderings.
That is the reason why you have to load your own external text file in the last versions, and so each time you load the device. I am currently working on a new version in which you will be able to save the custom text file within the device.
From now on, you can also open the device, replace the content of the template "coll" by the text of your choice (following the specific "coll" syntax) and then save the device.

I'd truly love to know how to load a deck/text file.
