Losing My Mind With Function

Ah! How frustrating! This tool could be so wonderful if only it wasn’t for this one thing…

I find that it’s near IMPOSSIBLE to get the beginning and end dots to be hollow. I have to click on each one about 50 times before I click it in just that ‘special’ way for it to turn hollow. I don’t understand it. Why not making a key command to turn the dots hollow like there is for sustain? I found that if the end dot isn’t hollow, then the note sustains until either the envelope is changed, the patch is quit, or a new note is hit with a different envelope (one that has a hollow point at its end). Does anyone have a solution for this other than using curve~ (I enjoy the GUI aspect of function) ? It’s quite aggravating.

Functionally loosing ones mind sounds like a good description of becoming a wise person. Anyhow, to my understanding dots are hollow when they’re on the zero line, and that that’s the only thing hollow means. Knowing this you could send a message to zero the first and last point. This should solve your sustain issue.

Here’s a tip: Once you get your start and end point hollow, you can send the message “fix index 1″ to lock a point so it can’t move anymore. So fix 0 1 will lock the first point, and do the same for the last point. This way you’ll never get stuck notes even if you accidentally click on the end points.
