Well, an its probably safe to say that most of us are phazing out the use of CRTs with lcd montiors in the next decade or so. In regards to max, this creates a sort of headache for myself, being as such I have a fixed resolution screen (1680x1050) and can't do much about that. I look at other programs, and for the most part they offer relatively easier solutions to resize the text if need be (pd, bidule, CPS).. where as the objects are resized and such. I was wondering, would it be possible to create some sort of max startup message that could somehow not only resize all applicable patchers such as help files and such, but reformat the dimensions to fit the new ratio presented by the I guess default object size. Or, alternatively, if someone were to go the brute force route and resize the help/insepctors/extras patchers to a more readible size, say Serif 12, would the list be willing to move towards making all patches that size? I mean, compared to most applications maxs text is tiny and it can lead to fatigue after working for many hours, having to sit closer, squint, etc. And we all don't have 20/20 vision, even with corrective lenses I still have trouble reading things closer than 12"... Anyways, if the list and Cycling were to agree to go that route, I would be willing to resize the text files with the hope that we could keep a certain size standard other than Serif 9. Every 3rd party external seems to use this size too, as making it part the defualt size of most of what constitutes the construction of max led to that being the case.. Well, I think its something that needs to be modified for more modern displays, and max is pretty old as well. I can see why being small on an old performa mac would have its benefits. Well, anyone else for making max's text a bit bigger? I can include some help files I messed about with if anyones interested in seeing the difference.
