Hrm. It sounds like you ought to do the tutorials. These are all
covered in the first few examples. I dont mean to be patronizing or
disrespectful, but the tutorials and documentation in Max/MSP are bar
none, use them and you will be rewarded .

Thanks for your message vade.

However, I said that Im a new user and of course I’ve been working on max and msp tutorials but,I didnt find anything about these.(my english is not enough :( )

I think that in here a max msp help each other forum.

If there is a “first step max users forum” I’ll go in there.

Though I agree with vade that the tutorials are the way to get started- I think he’s being rather stingy with the answers hehe.

If you want to use extra objects (I’m guessing you mean externals) you need to find the externals folder in the cycling 74 root folder and put the help files in the ‘help files’ folder in the max root folder

If you want to hide objects, you just need to go to click on the appropriate object and click – object- hide on lock. If you want the visa versa, just use show on lock. IF you want to do this with cables- you need to select them with alt.

If your using a mac, then just press apple K to hide and apple L to show- if your on XP there must be an equivilent too.

Hope this helps

Hi,

You can place your external objects into your “externals” folder.

If you want to hide objects, select your objects, go to object menu–>hide on lock

So those objects will be hidden when you lock your patch.

But as vade said, you should really find a way to complete the tutorials. Max/MSP has a rock solid documentation, and completing them will be very very rewarding.

Good luck!

Before telling people to use shortcuts, tell them to use the Menu Bar.

Show On Lock and Hide On Lock are in the Object menu. For that
matter, _everything_ for changing object properties is in the Object
menu. (Quel surpris.)

Once the guy knows where the Menu commands are, he can see the
shortcuts for himself.
