[max5] file preferences minor bug


    Apr 23 2008 | 11:15 am
    first of all congrats to C74 crew for the great work .
    i noticed a minor bug :
    it seems that choosing a new path in the file preferences inspectors does not work when "subfolders" button is checked.
    it makes actually max freezes for a while ( over a minute here ).
    the issue does not appear when the button is unchecked.
    as the button appears checked when one asks for a new path after clicking the "add" (+) button, it is a little confusing.
    osx 10.4.11 macbookpro
    it probably does not happen on leopard (?)

      How many files are there in the folder hierarchy you are adding to the search path? My guess is that you are adding a fairly large folder.

      you are right, the issue does not appear with small folders.
      i usually put all my third party/abstraction/patches/media folders in one folder outside of the max app folder. so it is indeed quite a big folder :)
