Hi f.e. and all :-)

I noticed that the Max window does not have a horizontal scrollbar
when long messages are posted. Is it a bug or a feature ? It happens
quite often that one has to print some lists or paths for example and
I find scrolling easier than resizing the Max window. Can we hope for
a horizontal bar in a next version ?

Best,
Julien

The Clue window, when open, displays the full text of an entry in the Max window when you put your cursor over it.
The Clue window is a big help, from giving details of what an object does to explaining attributes.

I have no idea if Cycling will add a horizontal scrollbar, but the
Clue window shows the full text of anything your mouse is hovering
over in the Max window.

Not as convenient as a scroll bar, I guess, but a workaround.
