Problem with and jit.textfile..

    Hi, I'm novice in Jitter, specially interested to manipulate text with objects. But I have a problem, maybe a beginner problem, with and jit.textfile objects. It seems to be impossible to display some words, some text which is in the jit.textfile connected to just banging this object : the only solution I found is to send before a simple message, like [text a], in the object, as if it would be necessary to initialyse it. After that, the text within jit.textfile can be displayed with a bang. Is this normal ? Have I missed something in the functionning of these objects ? I found a post in this forum, with a patch which can illustrate the problem :
    Thanks for any explanation..

      it's not clear from the patch what the problem is? can you perhaps add some comments to the patch with specific steps to reproduce? thanks.

      Thanks for your reply. Here is the patch (more simple), with comments. I hope it's more clear.
      Thanks again

      ahh yes. i believe i've noticed that before, and my solution was to do exactly as you've done (initialize first with message box, followed immediately by the matrix).
      thanks for the report, i'll try to get to the bottom of this.
