Is it possible to put a poly~ within a poly~ again in Max 6.1 ?


Some months ago I discovered that it was not possible to put a poly~ within a poly~ in Max 6 anymore while it was possible in Max 5 – and quite useful !

I don’t see anything about this in Max 6.1 release notes. Is it possible again ? Delayed to a future version ?

Can we have an officiel statement about this ?

Thank you in advance.

Thanks tada. I just hope it’s officially supported. I wouldn’t like it to be disrupted again in a future update…

… but I had nested poly~’s working in Max 6.0.8 just some days ago…

I use it all the time without any issue (5…- 6.0.… – 6.1)…

Strange. The point came without asking in an e-mail from the support about something else (a big patcher crashing). I have unfortunately lost many e-mails from 2012. However if it works indeed, everything’s fine then !

Just a note, I do think though that if you have nested poly~s with @parallel enabled, it only works on the parent poly~ (this may have changed in 6.1.x). For this reason (if I care about this in the particular patch I’m building), I tend to avoid nesting, if at all possible.
