weird bar in full screen

I’m getting a strange bar running along the bottom of the main screen of 3, when I go into full screen.
It’s about 20 pixels high, white, and has a red button that clicks it away on the lhs end.
It doesn’t appear on any other screen, nor subsequent to being clicked away.

Any idea what it is ?

Hi Jem,

If you have a patch that reliably reproduces this intermittent issue, please send along to Support. Thanks!

Well, this is the pared down crux of the matter. Doesn’t always do it. Not doing it now of course !

Hi! any news about this issue? I am having the same problem (macbook pro 15″ retina display late 2013)

This happens with every video patch I make using openGL render, as soon as I turn the window to fullscreen. When I close the patch, there is this bar at the bottom of the screen…

Confirmed here — MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz i7, OS 10.8.5, Max 6.1.6 32-bit — with even the simplest of patches. Only happens the first time, though. Once I close the mystery window by clicking on its close button, it doesn’t appear again till I restart Max.

Thanks everyone. We have this bug ticketed, though I don’t know when a fix will be available.
