clear max window from patch?


i saw a post last month about this, but it quickly digressed.

is there a way? i mean, i can end an email, or even delete my entire home folder using a command line interpreter, so surely there must be something to clear the max window??

i’m pretty sure you can’t.
i’ve seen an external that clean the max window by posting a lot of blank lines. but i think it’s not really what you want…

oh well. guess i’ll have to click that little button all by myself. jeez…

it could be done using osculator… but i think it’s easier to click…

send osc messages from max to osculator that triggers the keyboard shortcut chain (+M, +A, +X) in max/msp.

but it’s like killing a fly with a dozer.

It can be done without OSCulator using a series of keystrokes:

+M, +A, +X, +`

And focus should return to the patcher you started with. And it spells out MAX, so that’s kind of a bonus.

If you want to preserve clipboard contents:

+M, +A, [delete], +`
