Comments on panels vanish...


    Mar 05 2006 | 6:02 am
    It seems that comments on a panel (locked into the background) simply vanish as soon I lock the patch. First I thought they are placed bhind the panel, becaus when unlocking the background and send the panel to back, they appear and stay there, but this also works when I send the panel to front...
    Unfortunately this method is not helpfull when I script a comment.
    Bugreport:
    Scripting (or just placing) a comment on a panel which is in the background is invisible in the locked patcher.
    Expected result a visible comment.
    Steps to reproduce: look at the following patch...

      a work around for this is to bring your new comment to the front after creating it. For example send:
      'script new com comment 20 104 162 196617 My beautiful comment, script bringtofront com'
      to 'thispatcher'
      best,
