max browser – reveal in finder glitch?

March 31, 2010 | 3:47 pm

seem to have found a small, and mostly cosmetic bug… if anyone can confirm its not user error!

i have added a folder to the browser with all my patches, which is also added in the file preferences.
using the browser i navigate to a patch in this directory and hit reveal in finder, and i get nothing < ?>
if i go to a standard search (ie. msp objects) it works as expected.

thanks

This works fine here. What is the full path of your custom folder?

Hi Justin,

Does this happen with any patch or file? Is this after a restart of Max after adding the search path? Is the HD the boot drive? Do you have multiple user accounts? If so, is the user account you are using an Administrator account and have full access to this folder?

When you create another folder somewhere else, throw a patcher in it, and add it to Max’s file preferences, do you see the same behavior?

If you are still having problems, drop a note to me at support at cycling74 dot com.
