split object "unknown external object type"

Hello All,

I'm hoping someone could please help. Max won't recognise the object “split” – I've checked and the object exists in my max-externals folder. I've also checked the file path pref and that is good – other objects in the folder are found no problem but with “split” I get an “unknown external object type” message. Oddly If I double click the object in the file browser then I can add the object to a patcher but otherwise nothing!

I've attached 2 screenshots. I hope this makes sense!

Jamie

you might have another (unrelated) file called “split” in your search patch

Thank you for your reply Terry. I’ve searched and can’t find any other files with this name in the file path. Any further ideas?

the only thing I can think of is to trash the prefs file, or to reinstall max

Hello Terry – I deleted the prefs file as you suggested and this has sorted the problem out. Thank you for your advice.
