a question, hopefully one with a short answer.
i use max 4 in OS9 an OSX 10.4 and will continue to do so for a while. today i checked out if my externals, programs, and bpatchers would work in the max 5 (runtime).
several small issues appeared today with bpatchers, which made me worry a bit, because i have several bigger projects each based on hundres of bpatchers. the problems are mostly releated to the interface.
- ubutton flashes in max5 when it has been flagged to dont flash in max4.
- many graphics objects such as numberboxes seem to be shifted for about 1v1h pixels.
- the most strange thing is that the bpatcher object boxes themselves appear to be one pixel smller than in max4.
has anybody already found a simple way of automatically correcting these things in his patches? i am mainly looking for a solution which would work in max 4.1 - 4.6 (as i dont have 5 yet), for example textprocessing of max text files with bbedit (or max itself, i have done such thing before.)
it is probably unnecessary to complain about the fact that [umenu] is bigger in max5, but it is bigger in max5, and little 110 does not like that!
