MAX does not recognize Original MAX-object

April 25, 2013 | 8:41 am

severe MAX 5 problem: I have patcher with to capture objects and sometimes MAX does not recognize them. I the MAX-eindow the message
"capture | capture: No such object" appears when the patch gets loaded or when I write a new capture-object. And the worst, this does not happen everytime.
I use the latest Version of MAX 5, I dumped all preferences and caches several times, I cleaned the hard drive with Apple Disk Utility. No change.
Any idea?

Do you have a text file, or some other file called "capture" in the max search path or in the folder with the patcher you’re opening?

Best, Jeremy

thanks Jeremy, you are right, I had a text-file named Capture in the path. Wow, good to know that this is a problem, will not happen again

Many thanks for your quick response and good advice
