Max Tour


    Nov 29 2018 | 9:34 am
    Hi There, Hope this isn't too stupid a question. I am about to start teaching a Max class and I would like to direct students to the Max Tour. At the moment Help->Max Tour takes me to the "What's new in Max 8" tour. How do I help students find the c74/tour_common files tour files.
    Thanks in advance, Ian

      Hi Ian,
      I would suggest using the File Browser and searching for "tour_" to show all the tour files.
      The inconvenience of opening the individual patches is that you don't get to walk through the tour. Max uses JUCE for a lot of it's interface components and one of the things they did with the tours is to essentially have two patches open, one overlaying the other. https://youtu.be/4OQVBX2vx_g?t=1983
      So when you just open the tour_audio.maxpatch the [tourbutton] objects which normally navigate through the tour don't work. I'm not sure how you're supposed to launch a tour other than the Help menu...
      Hope that helps somewhat
