number box problem and windows not opening!!

I have several problems with max:

1. Whenever I go to the dsp status window it wont open, and all of a sudden about 20 of them open up, and the same happens when I open help files, they dont actually open up at all.

2. With objects like drunk and random, when they are banged to send out numbers, the numbers dont appear in the box connected to it until i click the box itself. Banging the box doesnt work either, it has to be clicked with the mouse.

Any suggestions? Is this a bug or does a cache have to be cleared or something?

thanks in advance

Max version number? Platform? OS version?

Patch that demonstrates your specific behavior? (you did trash your prefs before posting this and try again, right?)

People need to know these kinds of things – otherwise you’re asking ‘em to play Mind Reader….

Hey sorry it took a while, i think the preferences trashed helped, I’m running Mac osx 10.5 with Max 5. The boxes no longer freeze so I think its ok thanks!

what preferences would cause that? Dont really like trashing all of them. Im kind of new to it so not sure about trouble shooting but cheers the preferences thing worked anyway.

thanks!
