[Max5] h. scrollbar on Max window


    May 03 2008 | 11:33 am
    Hi f.e. and all :-)
    I noticed that the Max window does not have a horizontal scrollbar
    when long messages are posted. Is it a bug or a feature ? It happens
    quite often that one has to print some lists or paths for example and
    I find scrolling easier than resizing the Max window. Can we hope for
    a horizontal bar in a next version ?
    Best,
    Julien

      The Clue window, when open, displays the full text of an entry in the Max window when you put your cursor over it.
      The Clue window is a big help, from giving details of what an object does to explaining attributes.

      I have no idea if Cycling will add a horizontal scrollbar, but the
      Clue window shows the full text of anything your mouse is hovering
      over in the Max window.
      Not as convenient as a scroll bar, I guess, but a workaround.
