connection feature request

October 10, 2007 | 11:07 am

you know how nice it is to hold down some hotkey so that you can connect
multiple inlets to the one started outlet
well it goes the other way too half the time at least where you want to
connect a lot of outlets to one inlet
so I suggest max 5 have the option to start a patch cord from any inlet and
as such only allow it to end on outlets
that way people wont get stuck on this whole you gotta give to get motif and
they can start from getting and end up giving

Shift does this today.

lets not forget the infinitely useful max tool box, which will allow you to connect many objects in many different configurations with simple keystrokes-

shift does not do this today, you cant grab an inlet first, the program
requires you grab an outlet first to connection to receiving inlets, maybe
the toolbox does something new

I second this request. I’ve wanted this so many times. I don’t think shift goes from inlets to outlets? If there is a way, please tell us!

Max Toolbox can help, but the big annoyance there is to connect multiple things simultaneously you have to line them up horizontally. Supporting inlet to multiple outlets would be much better.
