tab ","s & crash


max crashes when i try to set the tab items to “L0-00a,b,c L0-00a,b,c L0-00a,b,c L0-00a,b,c” in the inspector (without the quote).

ok, putting “,”s into the string is not the best idea i ever had, but it doesn’t crash if i set the tab items to “L0-00a,b,c” for less than 4 items. it only crash for 4 or more.

moreover, “,”s are replaced with spaces when using the inspector, but if you paste the following text into max, it doesn’t crash, and “,”s stay there.

– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

this is because i edited the patch in a text editor and replaced the default tab items with “L0-00a,b,c … “.

i think there’s definitely something strange here…

Try escaping all the commas with a backslash so it looks a bit like this:

L0-00a,b,c L0-00a,b,c L0-00a,b,c L0-00a,b,c
