Forums > Max For Live

"New view"s are opening outside of my screen.

December 18, 2011 | 5:09 pm

I´m working on a max4live device right now, that has quite a lot of subpatches, most of them in bpatchers, embedded in the main patch. Sometimes (I guess about 20% of the time) when I want to edit a subpatch, right-click on the bpatcher and select "Object->New view of", the new view will open outside of my screen, where I can not reach it. Even exposé doesn´t show it.

I can see the entry of the new view under the "window" menu in max, but there is no way, to directly work with it. It is never shown on my screen.

Sometimes it helps to open the select "open new patcher with the contents of", close the window and try "new view of" again, but most of the time I will open and close windows, restart max, live and mac os x until I get to see the window or I give up.

Can anybody help here? As my device has quite a lot of subpatches, this behaviour is getting annoying.

I use Max OS X 10.6.7, Live 8.2.7 and Max 6.0.1

edit: update about 45 minutes later: this is it! I will not try to work at this patch, until I have my problem solved. I´m totally frustrated, work is impossible. Please help me, tell me what I´m doing wrong!

Try holding alt when you select the offscreen patch from the Window menu.
