 //Patch variations// were introduced in Unify v1.6.0. Any patch can optionally include a reference to a plain-text "variations" file (kept in the library's //Media// folder), which is simply a list of "variation names", one per line. The newly-added [[param-paths#top-level_paths|top-level parameter]] //variation// can be linked to a macro knob, and simply selects which of the variation names is displayed in white to the right of the patch name. //Patch variations// were introduced in Unify v1.6.0.

 +You select the variations file for a patch (if any) when saving the patch. As of Unify v1.6.0, the patch-save dialog includes a "Variations" section (which was expanded in v1.8) as shown below:

 +{{::variations-0.png|}}
 +
 +To select (or change) the referenced variations file, click the //Variations// button to select the variations file you created from a pop-up menu:
 +    * The first item allows you to //Clear// the variations file selection (if you decide you don't want to use one)
 +    * After this, you will see a list of all //.txt// files in your library's //Media// folder, from which you can select.
 +    * If you hold down Option/ALT when clicking the button, there will also be an //Open...// item near the top. This will pop pop up a standard file-open dialog, so you can navigate to any location to find the //.txt// file you want. //Note this will make your patch non-portable to other machines.//
