[coll] does not accept , and ; anymore?

January 13, 2013 | 6:41 pm

Hello all,
I have been using [coll] for a long time to remotely send many different messages to many different places on one click. I use , or ; for that. It appears that the current [coll] object reads text files where these signs appear but does not accept any edition. It does not want to close…
Any idea?
Thank you very much,
Philippe

I’ve posted about this a couple of months ago, they acknowledge it’s a bug and I believe they’re looking into it.

The only work around at the moment is to send a message with the string of text into Coll.

i’ll write about it in the wiki (http://cycling74.com/wiki/index.php?title=known_bugs#Max_externals)

Thank you very much for your help. My current workaround is to write [coll] content in TextEdit and load it…
Bye

Philippe, I use the same techique as you but never noticed this bug as I always use TextWrangler to edit my colls, but this is really annoying and need a fix.

Thanks for pointing this out.
