key object has unreliable response in max 5

Hi,

I’m getting unreliable response with key object in Max 5:

- open the key object help file
- slowly repeatedly tap space bar, watch max window print “You hit the space bar” for each tap
- clear max window
- press and hold down trackpad mouse button inside the window
- slowly repeatedly tap space bar, usually at least the third tap will not give a response

This is new in Max 5, and quite badly ruins any interface using mouse with keys.

I’m on 2008 Macbook 15″ 2.4 GHz and os 10.6.1.

All the best,

j

Hi Ben,

Isn’t this an issue that I reported 9 months ago, with several responses from you? Still quite anxiously awaiting a fix. See this thread:

In that older thread, Ben said:

I disagree, this is something you need to fix. If nothing else, make the added broken functionality optional, or another object.

Thanks,

Zachary, yes, this is same problem.

jusu, as I mentioned, our engineering team is aware of the issue and will take a look to see if there is anything we can do on our end.
