Beers on me, too! Although, you would have to drink "eine Maß auf der Wiesn, wenn'st mogst" ;-)
And since you seem to be the genius of finding secret functions in MAX ... would you also happen to know a solution to this:
I want to create a large matrix of tabs, which can be labeled. With your help, I can label them now. However, they have to be multi-line buttons, as I need between 30 and 60 fields on that matrix. But when I do that, I get really small pads that are not easy to hit. Only, if I set text size quite large, I get good pad sizes. But then again, the text gets to big to fit into the pads ...
Is there a way to fix, how many rows and columns you get independently from text size? I actually found this worked perfectly on Lemur or touch OSC. But I cannot get it working with Mira. I only found a hack by using a tabbed mira.multitouch placing text fields in front of every tab. But this is really a pain in the ass to set up for a quite normal operation like some labeled pads ... there should be an easier way to get it done.
