Im trying to send some input text which is typed like this:
In From MIDI Yoke: 3
To a message box so it ends up like this: (with double quotes)
"In From MIDI Yoke: 3"
However, im stumped at how I can do this. Ive tried combine (which removes all the spaces so doesnt work) and also sprintf, which adds a after every double quote.
Combine = " InFromMIDIYoke:3"
Sprintf = " In From MIDI Yoke: 3"
append/prepend = " In From MIDI Yoke: 3"
I dont get it. Why cant I just send a simple string of text through max and append prepend quotes? Would be grateful for any pointers?
if i use tosymbol it works – however I have a double space in my text. tosymbol now removes this so im back to square one again :(
I can get the extra space to come through if i escape it with a . However this is not really a solution. Would love to know how to get tosymbol to ignore the extra spaces.
