[bug report] buggy max text editor

not too sure this is the right place to say this, but i didn’t find anything like a “bug report link”, so there it is :

there is a bug in the text editor in max (the one used for [coll], [text] and [js]…) : in the tutorial patch 03dGestureCapture you record datas and at one point the datas in the coll are no more displayed in the text editor, counting from line 2318 in the following screen capture. The datas are still there cause if you copy paste the content of the editor into an apple editor, it will display the proper list completely. And since the tutorial patch is working somehow normally, i guess the datas can be read properly by the computer, it seems to be only a display bug.

I’m running max 5.1.4 on macosX 10.4.11 (macbook 13,3″ intel core 2 duo 2GHz 1Go667DDR2 ram etc)

Not a problem here (same max on 10.5.8).

SO. Yes it does work. But it’s slightly uglier :/ (blurry font)
thanks a lot anyway
