Max crashes when copying cables
I just recently started encountering the problem, that Max crashes if I press Alt and click on a cable ending to copy that cable (I’m on a mac)… Anyone experienced that crash yet and knows what to do?
Came on here to see if this was a recognised problem. I’m on Max 6.0.7 and frequently experience crashes when selecting multiple cables. Sorry Benedikt, I have no solution.I’ll keep searching and let you know if there are fixes.
Have you got the latest version for the Mac ?? I had this problem with Mavericks but the latest update fixed it.
Ah, I’m presently running 6.0.7. For some reason I missed the 6.0.8 update, I presume that’s free. Does that version resolve the problem or do I need to spend the cash on 6.1?
Appreciate your help, Andro.
there’s no cash to spend on 6.1. You should definitely upgrade! If you do’nt want 64 bits, no problemo, you can uncheck 64 bits in max.app properties.
And I wouldn’t bother using the 64 bit version unless you somehow manage to need more than 4 gig of RAM at once with Max .
Thanks for the info Vichug & Andro, I’ll update to 6.1. I’m not sure why I was so sure I had to pay for it, I guess I couldn’t find a definitive answer on the FAQ page and presumed the worst.
@andro, another reason to use the 64 bit version is for higher precision in floating point calculation.
Having looked at the downloads page, however, I see 6.1 is 32 bit only for Mac. I’m on Mac so that’s that problem solve ;)
hm, you might have understood wrongly again :p on Mac, there is only one Max app, but it can be either 32 or 64 bits. You just have to check a box in the app’s properties. Whereas on Windows there are 2 separate applications.
This is starting to get embarrassing. I may have to delete this thread, it’s really not making me look good.
Thanks for the info, Vichug.
So I have 32/64bit options. Why would I NOT choose 64bit if it gives greater resolution with floating points? What do I sacrifice by doing this? Anyone care to share? (Perhaps this should be a new thread, I’ll leave it here for now.)
