    Small thing but Autoconnect Positions By Mouse option in Preferences>Patching is inverted in my copy ("Beta Version 8.2.0 (ba4ca3ebc74) (x64 windows)"), when it is disabled Max creates new objects in the mouse position, when enabled it creates new objects immediately below the connected object.

      Thanks for the report. Oddly, I think this has been an issue since 2014!

      After talking with a colleague, I realize that I've misunderstood the nature of this preference. What it means is that when enabled, a new object and connection will be created from the closest inlet/outlet to where the mouse is. The preference description is not worded correctly, and it points to the fact that we could probably refine this preference and patching mechanic in general. I'll be sure to get the wording of the description fixed up. Thanks again for the report!
