just started to use max6 after years or mostly max4 and a little bit of max5, and some prefs totally escape me
1/ in max6 I HAD those blue lines, which, when creating a new object, helped me to align it with the other objects. I made changes in the prefs (such as having a small circle when creating an object) and those blue lines are not there anymore. Not that I really miss them, but I cannot find the command to restore them...
2/ in older max versions, there was all those helps (in the manual) to explain things such as all the commands of the menus (what exactly is "save as project" in file menu ?) or other useful infos ( which number to use with the midievent message if I want to set, say, aftertouch on channel 7 ?). where are they now???
__I like max6 so far But am not very fond of the help/doc system (beside, since it is linked to max itself, it makes impossible to read part of it on, say, an ipad).
many thanks for some pointers
