Max6 window prefs


    Oct 24 2012 | 5:12 pm
    Hi all,
    Where did the "All windows active" preference go in Max6? Having the patcher focus change every time I use a numbox is a major pain.
    How can I keep ALL patcher windows visible when switching applications? Some stay, some leave and I can't find the pref for it. For example, the MIDI Tester patch disappears when switching to another app. A newly created patcher doesn't.
    I'm on OSX 10.6.8, Max 6.0.7
    Making the switch to Max6 feels a bit like learning a new software.. weird.
    Thanks! jm

      If I choose 'New View' and then close the original MIDI Tester, it stays when switching.
      I'm guessing there's a new concept in Max6 that I don't quite grasp. I guess I'll go RTFM.
      My question for the "All active windows" pref still stands though!
      Thanks, jm

      On Mac, our implementation of "All Windows Active" was not feasible with newer versions of the Mac OS, so it has been removed for the time being.

      It has been maybe another update of "all windows active"?? I cannot run other apps during Max msp processing and its killing my work on Max 6... Is there any forced solution? Thx.
