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

      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.

      stop using a tablet....
      ..with a mouse or touchpad it works fine
      which means for me that i have to wait for the next update
      cause i only can work with a tablet.....
      :(

      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
