Jit.cellblock bug

    I hate to keep complaining about text handling in max but I have encountered another block in my quest for a way to edit, store and sequence text messages. The contents of cells in a jit.cellblock are not being retrieved correctly from a saved patcher or saved cellblock data file.
    Note the
    And here is patch to illustrate the problem...

      Gary: Not a direct answer to your bug inquiry, but I have another suggested strategy for interfacing the pattr system with [jit.cellbock] which may help you or others out. It uses [poly~] for non-MSP work, something Peter Elsea's tutorials turned me onto.
      It's currently 1-dimensional because that's all I needed, but maybe could be adapted? [jit.cellblock] has to be at the top of my wishlist for objects that should interface with pattr system. I traded emails with Jeremy about this a while back, but I'll repeat my request for this feature.
      Let me know what you think. Save both files, then open the "nw.polypattr.mxb". --Nathan
      Save following as "nw.transitlabels.mxb"
      Save following as "nw.polypattr.mxb"

      I'll have a look at this after I finish my commission. In the meantime, I have found a simple work around. Use a / as a message delimiter instead of a comma.
