Coll – small bug report

December 4, 2010 | 7:31 pm

Hi,
Here is a very small but sometime annoying bug…
On Mac Os X.6.5 and Max 5.1.6

1 In a folder there is a file named filetest
2 There is also a patch with a coll objet with filetest as argument.
3 While openning the patch, the coll object contains the content of filetest file
4 With an external editor, add some lines to filetest and save.
5 Erase coll and re-intensiate it with the same argument
6 —> The new lines aren’t in it.
7 Send the readagain message to coll
8 —> The new lines are now loaded.

In max 4.6, new lines were loaded when the coll was rebuilt.
It is probably the good moment to request an autowatch attribute to coll! -)

Thanks.
Philippe ollivier.

Hi Philippe,

I can put in an autowatch-like feature request for coll, but in the meantime you might want to use filewatch to do such a thing.

Of course, yes, you are right.
Philippe.
