I noticed something,
I wanted to use a message box intead of a pack object in an abstraction.
It seems lika when a message contains #1 and $1, $2..., dollars do not
seem to work anymore...
Did you ever have the smae trouble ?
Did you combine them into 1 message? If so, how? #1 has to be at the
beginning of a symbol (#1#2 doesn't work, you need to concat), $ needs a
white space in front. afaik there is no problem with these and abstractions.
[#1something $1 #2] should work just fine for example.
Really Peter? Why would you do that? As far as I know, there's no
problem using #1 and $1 in message box. The #1 will be store in the
max file as $1 and the $1 as $1 but who cares? You don't even have
to think about that.
Sebastien, can you post something wich could explain your question?
I must say I have never had any problem with # arguments in a message
box, nor with using both # and $ arguments in the same box. It always
seems to work fine, as long, of course as each is at the beginning of a

a # in a messagebox only works when the object
is loaded, a # in an [i] or [f] object box can
be loadbanged and then it will also work when
you change the arguments to the patcher - which
is the main idea behind arguments.
