Best way to overide text object commands

July 12, 2010 | 1:03 am


I have a text objec that is being fed a stream of single words from a javascript object. In betwen the javascript and the text object is a subpatcher that checks for messages to the text object and converts the to symbols. This is apparently a proximal cause to Max crashing (see below). I am wondering what the best way to convert messages like "open" so that it would be a word in the text object rather than opening it?

I think this is the proximal cause of the crash becasue of these lines in the report. It is the only place I can find an iter leading to a route

Nevermind (but thanks for reading). Right after I posted I realized I could group the output from the JS using zl group and then go to symbol, now I just have to account for when a command message is the last line of something and comes out singularly from a the group object.
