Anyone know how to make [textedit] become active (ready to accept text input) again after it has been triggered to output by the return key without having to click on it again? Thanks

I think you can send it a "select" message, which would be triggered by the output. This also lets you daisy-chain them together, sort of like how the right outlet of number boxes lets you Tab through a row of them.

Informal poll—how many Maxers on here knew about the right outlet on number boxes??  ;)  I know it was a year or more before I discovered it…it was in a Max 4 Inspector, actually…remember those?
