currently my max paste at random places
is there a way to make max paste where the mouse pointer is
are you sure the paste is truly random? In my experience, Max pastes close to the point where the cursor was at the point of ‘copy’ – but this is just my observation.
as an example
if I copy an object from patch A then paste the object on patch 1 will paste by right corner
on a new patch will be close to the middle.
If you use the key command for Paste, it pastes where the objects were originally, because they have the patching_rect attributes in them. Repeated Paste will drop them objects down and to the right just like Duplicate does.
Either way, if you right-click with the mouse for Paste, it pastes at the cursor, overriding the original patching_rect attributes.
Interestingly, if you paste with the keyboard, then do some pastes with the mouse, then do more keyboard pastes, they "remember" the several mouse-pastes and include spaces in the "down-right" line…totally did not expect that!
