rslider feature request

April 25, 2008 | 8:21 pm

The new inspector is great, providing a wonderful consistency to all objects in Max5. But it also points out some curious limitations.

For example, why isn’t there an option to have rslider output floats as well as ints?

Please?

It’s not going to happen for today’s incremental. But it might arrive
in the next one.

In the meantime it’s easy enough to simulate a float rslider. Sorry about the inline post but I thought it was small enough. If you reply, delete it, so we don’t get yelled at ;)

Um, thanks, but point was not having to do it.
