filetype coll bug other new feature

I have trouble when I send message filetype TEXT to coll. When I save the coll, I can not select my file with opendialog (argument TEXT). I have use resorcer for see if the filetype is TEXT and there is nothing in filetype field. I know that filetype and creator is “old school” in OS X. How can I append a file extension for the coll message write ? Is there a special feature in Max ?

there’s something strange going on there… it should work…

another way round this problem is to append the .txt extension onto the filename, then u can select text files with opendialog.

so instead of “write test”, use “write test.txt”

that seems to work on my system: mbp / osx 10.4.11 / max 504

I can confirm there are some problems with coll and filetypes.

In the medium term, you need to find a way to workaround them.

Thanks for the patch
