Error in coll ? I don't get it.

    Hi,
    I have this coll :
    1, 0 0 0;
    2, 29 29 29;
    3, 63 63 63;
    4, 63 29 29;
    5, 29 63 29;
    6, 29 29 63;
    and Max tells me ''errors in text file in line 2''
    the coll is ''saved with patcher''
    It seems to work the way I want, though.
    Is this a bug ?
    Thanks

      Wild guess: Any invisible gremlins in your text file? Maybe a non-breaking space?

      Thanks for your replies.
      I ended up adding several lines to this coll, and it works fine now.
      No idea what it was though. I had already tried to erase invisible space...
      Anyway, thanks again.

      I've experienced error messages in coll objects for a few years now without really understanding why this is happening.
      The coll objects behave the way they're supposed to, but I always have an error in the Max Console "coll: (name): errors in text file in line n".
      For example, this coll is called times and it's save with patcher:
      1, 4000;
      2, 68500;
      3, 108000;
      4, 205500;
      5, 305000;
      6, 402000;
      and Max console says "coll: times: errors in text file in line 1"
      I am working on a patch for a performer and I really want to get rid of the errors in the Max Console if possible.
      any ideas appreciated, thanks

      I also had this problem, and found the way to solve it was to copy and paste your data into the [coll] object, and then use the write command to write a new file. The [coll] object will then be able to read the new .txt file as well as accepting the file in the [coll] argument.

      ah ok, thanks.
      The thing is I usually "save data with patcher" but I'll try.
      I got so used to these error messages that I don't notice them anymore.
