Using "cables" – a beginner

September 7, 2006 | 11:25 am

Hello,
I have noticed that in the tutorials the "cables" connecting parts of the patches are shaped to fit between the objects perfectly, even crossing beteween them but I only manage to have cable as straight lines, can somebody help me with this?
Thank s a lot

In Max’ menus, go to Options and check "Segmented patch cords". And
while you’re there, have a look at the other options too ;-)

or hold the shift key down when initially clicking the outlet the
patch/cable originates from.

If I could count the hours Ive spent making my patches legible and
perfectly aligned spacing, id probably shoot myself. Its an anal
retentive persons dream come true ;)
