UI bug


i found a strange behavior when locking/unlocking a patcher. if you lock/unlock very fast, a magic thing happens.

look at this : http://ev.gui.free.fr/UI-bug.mov

Hmmmm, I cannot reproduce at all. Is this only with the newest version of Max? What’s your system?

i’m on osx 10.6 up to date with max 5.1.3.

you need a large patch with a lot of hidden-on-lock object.

try this one, i can reproduce it after few cmd+(double-clic) tries.

Ah, I can do it too. But for me it seems that Max suddenly slows down enormously too, I’m unable to select objects after it does that strange thing. Closing down Max also becomes a lot more difficult, I tried to Quit a couple of times, but ended up using Force Quit as it didn’t do anything.

Max 5.1.3 (41767) on MacOS 10.5.8.

yes max slows down more with this patch than with the one used in the video i uploaded… i don’t know why.

I can’t reproduce any problems locking and unlocking this patch on either platform

I can reproduce this, on Mac OSX 10.6.2 and Max 5.1.3. I have to lock and unlock insanely fast, but it does happen.

Can’t reproduce on Max 5.1.3, OSX 10.5.8.
