Max6 – coords disappearing over panel ?
I just got Max 6 and found an odd behaviour that wasn’t present in the last version.
When I lock a patch the patch coords that are running over a panel object disappear… Is there a preference that I missed ? I have tried the obvious such as sending the panel object to the back but no luck.

didn’t check your patch but there was a thread not long ago. i think -it will work if you include the panel in the background(object inspector)- was the answer.
yeah the "problem" is for the most part a good thing, that cables now pop under objects when the patch is locked. Sometimes you want different behaviour.
Thanks 11olsen, I didn’t see that thread ! I think it’s an odd behaviour since there is an option to hide the patch coords and there is the presentation mode as well. It’s odd because the send to back function doesn’t change anything either ! Since the focus on version 6 was usability, it’s definitely a usability bug !
I use the panel to highlight a part of the patch for tutorials that I do for my students and there is now quite some work to be done now !
It’s mostly a good feature, but I agree that it’s an irritation in your particular use case. The "universal" object might make your life a little easier.
