spray and floats

Hi all,
although the manual and the help file say that spray only deals with integers (or lists in list mode), it seems that now it can understand floats (see patch below): is it something we can continue to count on in future max versions?

TIA
Maurizio

Yep, I know and I mentioned list mode in my previous post.

The fact is that spray now accepts floats in non-list mode also, despite the manual and the help saying that in this case it will recognize integers only.

This is absolutely, totally fine for me: i love floats in spray.
I only would like to know if this is an official improvement that will be mantained and documented in future releases of max.

I’d like to see even more enhancements: why not symbols as well? A lot
of objects carry unnecessary restrictions for types from old 68000 days.
It wouldn’t break a single patch, but would make life easier…
