Node for Max fails to restart script when file is edited with an external editor


    Jan 18 2022 | 12:42 am
    I am able to reliably make node for max barf with any script by following these steps:
    1. Start a valid script 2. Open the file in Max and edit the script, it restarts properly 3. Open the file in nvim, Sublime Text or VSCode
    This results in:
    "Process failed to restart"
    or sometimes:
    connect ENOENT /Volumes/dlof/u154001244_stdio
    Can anyone reproduce this on their end and confirm it is a bug?

      Seems to also happen if the Max native text editor is opened, destroyed and reopened during the normal course of working with the object.
      For a bit more info I should have provided initially I'm:
      Max: 8.2.1 OS: macOS 12.1 Hardware: M1

      Hi James.
      Just ne more data point in order to investigate with full focus - are you running Max natively (arm64) or under Rosetta?
      Thanks

      I'm running natively.
