silly question about key commands


    Apr 06 2013 | 9:45 am
    Hello,
    This may sound a little silly to some people,but....max/msp suddenly doesn't "obey" on the key commands like ctrl+S, shift+ctrl+S,ctrl+O etc. This happened suddenly and can't find the reason why. The weird thing is that some other commands like ctrl+N or ctrl+E still work.
    I know this is not a big deal but it has made my life much harder now, as every time I have to save (which I do it a lot in order to avoid losing data in a possible crash) I use mouse etc
    Thanks in advance

      Make sure you haven't deleted (or edited, or moved) Cycling '74/init/max-keycommands.txt.
      That's where the keyboard shortcuts are defined. You can, of course, customize this file for your own needs and preferences, but you make changes at your own risk.

      thanks for the response...
      I opened the file you are talking about and it has only these
      max definecommand n patcher insertobj newobj; max definecommand m patcher insertobj message; max definecommand r patcher insertrecent; max definecommand p patcher insertobjectpalette; max definecommand b patcher insertobj button; max definecommand t patcher insertobj toggle; max definecommand i patcher insertobj number; max definecommand f patcher insertobj flonum; max definecommand c patcher insertobj comment; max definecommand j patcher inserttextobj jit.; max definecommand P patcher inserttextobj "newobj @presentation 1 @text ";
      However it doesn't say anywhere ctrl+N for new patch or ctrl+E for unlock...
      Any thoughts?

      I may add that I have installed recently jamoma but never use it as I had an older version of max/msp that the one required..I don't remember if this is has anything to do with,but I think that the problems occured during the same time I installed the jamoma.However I am not sure about it...
