my own file extention
Hi list !
I’ve try the "; max system macintosh fileformat abc TEXT" message to Max so that an "opendialog TEXT" object can allow to choose .abc files.
it doesn’t work.
Is there something I’ve missed ?
if file.abc is of type TEXT it should work. – is it?
the extension is doing almost nothing on mac, at least it is the last thing the system is looking for when trying to associate documents to executables.
file.abc is definitely of type TEXT (it’s saved from a coll).
actually, the exact extention I use is ".sed".
But still, dos not work.
I mean, exactly :
Got "system macintosh fileformat abc TEXT" sent to Max at patcher load.
file.abc saved with a savedialog object.
when I bang an "opendialog TEXT" object, everyfile.txt appear black but all the others, includedfile.abc appear grey, unclickable.
ok from what i can tell offhand normally "type TEXT" should be working for this file.
but i could be wrong, maybe it is some limitation/intelligence of the opendialog object.
please try the importing/reading with [dropfile], [coll], or [text] and see if that works (it should),
then you know if it is a file problem or a max problem.
(aside from the issue that it doesnt open: abc is definetly not the file format
only because the file is called llike that. furthermore, all-small-caps types
are (were) reserved for apple.)
Ok, I’ve find.
it’s just the dot before abc that was missing in the message to Max.
so it as to be said like : ""system macintosh fileformat .abc TEXT"
sorry and thank you.
