[live.numbox] initial enable bug ?
It seems that, in Live 9 at least, [live.numbox] doesn’t initialize properly its ‘initial enable’ value. Instead, it initializes with the value last set when you save the device. Copied those boxes in max standalone and he initialization is ok.

My info system + I work with Live 9.04
"Version 6.1.2 (6a3e522)",
"platform" : "mac",
"arch" : "x86",
"osversion" : "Mac OS X Version 10.8.3 x86_64",
Setting ‘Parameter Visibility’ to ‘Hidden’ should give the behavior you want.
But if I do that, will the value be saved in the set if I modify it ?
Found the reference for this parameter in max help and it seems to be the case. What I would like is tthat the device is initialized according to the ‘initial enable’ parameter but saved with the set. So it seems that I have to be sure the numboxes are set to values corresponding to their initial setting in the inspector and set to ‘automated and stored’ before I save the device after editing… So I don’t really see the point of ‘initial enable’.Another way would be to send loadmess to each numbox I want to initialize but that adds objects to the patch.
The ‘initial enable’ value can be useful as starting point when a device is loaded the first time in a set.
