About tracing

Ok I know this could be a silly question, but I am following the jitter tutorials in Max 5 and in one of them I read the following:

If you choose the Enable command from the Trace menu, and then step through the message order with the Step command (�-T), you will see how this plays out. (See the “Debugging” chapter of the Max 4.0 Tutorials and Topics manual for details about how to trace Max messages with the Trace feature.)

I have read the max tutorial and it talks about debugging with watchpoints and stepping through them, nothing about clicking on Enable from the Trace menu. Now I am not english so maybe tracing and watchpoints mean the same, but I can´t find that trace menu.

Could someone help me please?

Thanks!

the documentation in the jitter tutorial is incorrect (or rather it is no longer correct). if you provide us with the tutorial number, we can track it down and fix it.

please use the documentation titled “Debugging” from the max help main page.

Sure, there are actually two tutorials where this is mentioned:
Tutorial number 3, where it says “important note” inside a blue box.
The other one I can´t remember, I think it was around tutorial 16.

Thank you!!
