font sitze in message

June 4, 2010 | 1:26 am

Hello,
is there a message to change the font size in a message field. I know I can do it in the inspector, but I need to do it inside the patch like it’s possible for the color etc.
If it isn’t possible, is there a wish list for further releases???

thanks,

Here’s some interesting things to try:

When you have the Inspector open, click anywhere within the box for something in the Setting column (such as, say, "Font Size") and drag from the Inspector into your patcher window. When you let go of the mouse, something useful will happen.

Or click on the @-sign in the lower left of the Inspector window and watch the Inspector expand and add a new column. Imagine that the new word in the "Attribute" column is a message.

Or, bring up the refpage and click on the big blue link that says "Information for box attributes common to all objects" and check out the listings there.

Any of these activities will not only be productive now, but later on!

Any time, Frank. While I’m delighted to see you making your way in Max, I hope you’ll still find some time to make a little music now and then.
