Live screen zoom access


    Mar 30 2010 | 3:26 pm
    hello,
    I´m totally new with m4l, I would like to know how could I access the "zoom screen" option, which is in -prefs-look & feel, in ableton live.
    I work with my laptop on stage, and I could be really great to be able to resize the screen as I go far away from it, using midi or whatever.
    any ideas??
    thanks a lot!!

      Its not possible. The API features that are currently there are features that were only possible to control with MIDI controllers.

      wau!!
      so I don´t really get the point about m4l. why to work so hard in a patch to make some thing that you can do with much less efforts with the ableton live interface or just mapping anything to a midi controller??
      pease, let me know what´s the point with m4l, so I´ll be able to take advantage of it!
      thanks a lot.

      could you not do it will the aka.shell object and tell live what you need done? not sure what the command would be, but i have accessed other apps like that.

      what you mean I tell live? I don´t know about unix commands, but if I knew that way it could be possible I could study some. could it be done that way? thanks

      Ableton have not made the zoom function of the UI automatable.
      Maybe you could make a feature request to them for it.
      Also maybe there's some kind of way to automate OS UI zooming, via a some kind of MIDI to keyboard shortcut.

      hello andrew, yes, in fact I made a patch using the "universal access" zoom options 3 years ago. it works fine, but with less resolution. and I always wonder what is m4l for if it just makes the same things you can do using max and ableton live.
      and I always like to try new ways for making the same things!!
      here is the patch (for max 4.6!! by the way, I miss it´s old style look):
