Date: no such object

April 10, 2013 | 5:34 pm

Hi all, I’m having problem in Max 6.1.2 (had the pb with 6.1 too).

The date object remains greyed out. The max windows says: "date: No such object"

any clues why this is happening? I’ve trashed preferences, re-installed Max but still have the pb. With any new patcher.
I use to be able to go around this problem by copying the date object from the help file. But now the date object in the help file is greyed out too.
I’m on os X 10.7.5

check if you have any file named "date" in your patcher’s folder, or a folder in the Max search paths (or if your patcher itself is named "date")..

sometimes this makes objects unavailable.

What laonikoss said. This sort of problem is almost always a name collision with something named date.* in your search paths.
