07mNumericalUserInterfaces 'Size $1' issue

July 23, 2013 | 3:35 am

I’m relatively inexperienced at Max and something in the tutorial 7 patch is confusing me. Since it might be normal behaviour that’s not overly intuitive, I wanted to ask early.

When I modify the number being sent to the Size $1 message the first time, everything works as expected. But when I modify the value a second time, the sliders behave like I’m sending a 0 each time. The min amd mult messages are fine.

Secondly, the tutorial says the first time I set the size value to 50, the sliders should begin sending a range of 30 to 79. But that only happens if min has been set to 30 already. Did the tutorial forget to mention that?

Thanks for your patience!

The size $1 messages work fine here, not sure what’s happening at your end.

You’re right about the wording: it should say to set the min to 30 before the slider will output 30 to 79. Without changing it, it will output 0 to 49. Nice catch :)

Thanks, much appreciated.

Strangely, the size $1 issue only happens to me on Windows in work, but not on my Mac at home. I can live with that though.
