_slightly_ wrong numbers, but it matters here.
1) create a floating number box
2) set it to 1548.3870
3) connect a button to the inlet
4) connect the outlet to the right inlet of a message box
5) lock the patch
6) click the button
expected result: the message should read 1548.3870
actual result: the message reads 1548.386963
I thought using [float] instead of a message might fix the problem ... not so.
Strangely 15483870. - the same figures, but a different decimal point/magnitude transfers just fine, ... so, my next attempt at a workaround goes like this:
1) send 15483870. via a [float] object
2) divide by 10000.
what on Earth is the story behind this behavior
