    Hi there,
    maybe an easy question, maybe not: How do I manage to swap between windows in Jitter? I

      ... and maybe a more trickier question: How can you switch between an external fullscreen-application (i.e. swf-player) and a jitter-window? Grateful for any hint.

      You can play .swf files in Jitter so it concides with your other
      question which has the answer to alternately give your window the
      'front' command.

      Hm, it is not exactly a flash-animation I want to display but a webpageish swf that is fed with strings from xml-tags, dynamically from a network-server. Also with an intergated time- and date-counter. So I suppose the qt.movie functionality fails on this one.
      Any idea how to force an external system-window to the front/back? Or how to make a jitter window dis- an reappear, revealing an external application instead of the Max programming environment?

      I don't know the answer but you could try looking at rotate window commands that might be available via applescript or using the external shell object to do this. If you're using a Mac that is, I don't know about the windows platform.

      Look at the helpfile and html help for jit.window. If you need to
      explicitly bring the browser to the front, you can use applescript
      with the [shell] or [tap.applescript] externals, which you can find
      via maxobjects.com.

      Well you can change the size, location and atributes (scroll no
      scroll etc) of a jit.window.
      So if you use two screens (main patch monitor and player monitor)
      then you can put your player window behind your main patch on the
      main patch monitor.
