numberboxes smoke crack in Max5?


    Apr 23 2008 | 9:11 am
    Hi there,
    Taking the new Max 5 for a spin, looks great (especially the new Max status window) but numberboxes are really freaking me out. The new behavior of continuing to increase/decrease is nice for float boxes, but for int boxes I can't get any measure of precision when I click and drag. Any tips?
    Cheers Evan

      Thanks for the report. However, you need to be *much* clearer in what you're describing, and should post to the main max list. The numberbox works fine according to my expectations, but maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're looking for.

      There should really be a "number boxes smoke crack" checkbox in the inspector. There has to be a way to toggle that on and off. You guys dropped the ball on that one, cycling.

      it;s not only the numberbox but also forexample the triscale attribute with a tablet it's very hard to put it on a certain number
      coulnd't find a tablet setting in any prefs yet.....

      Oh, I see - it was under the "meth-lab-in-the-bathtub" menu inspector. I unclicked the box, but that's a hard habit for them to break...
      Anyway, from my other posts you've probably guessed by now that this is a tablet issue. The mouse works fine, but the Wacom tablet is all over the place with gui objects. 10.4.11 & Wacom 6.0.5-3
