Hi I am new to max, can you help please,

how do you clear number boxes, which act as clocks, to make them start counting from the start.

Thankyou so much Wendy Smith

also how do you pause the time when you hit the ‘p’ button on the computer keyboard, Thanks Wendy

If you send the number box a message like "set 0" the number will be set to 0 without any output. You can use the "set $" message and send a number into the left inlet of the message box to set the number to a variable.
use [key] or [keyup] to send keyboard input to max.

Don’t have max on my iPad :-)) but if you have a counter in your patch you an reset it (although I’ve always it tricky and counter sometimes exhibits strange behaviours).
