Max 5 redundant keyboard shortcuts

p -> opens object palette
shift+p -> opens object palette
command+shift+o -> opens object palette

…but there’s no default shortcut to add an object in presentation
mode. Sure it is possible to modify this by editing the
maxinterface.json but again for teaching purposes a standard solution
would have been better.

Why not setting command+p as a default shortcut to add an object to
presentation mode? (It is not possible to print a patch anymore in
Max 5 anyway…).

If you create an object (with ‘n’ shortcut for instance) in
presentation mode, its presentation attribute will automatically be
enabled. Is it what you’re looking for?

In the next coming soon (hopefully) incremental, you’ll be able to
press ‘P’ to directly create an object with the presentation attribute
enabled. This is made possible by adding the following line to max-
keycommand.txt:

max definecommand P patcher inserttextobj “newobj @presentation 1
@text “;
