    hi,
    i posted on pluggo list but no answer. maybe ther's no answer to this problem, but i suppose no.
    is it possible to write text in a pluggo in ableton live ?
    ...with text edit or other.
    how do you do this ?
    thx.

      As far as I know as long as Ableton Live has the focus then Live steals
      all key-presses for its internal key assignment stuff.
      The long way of doing it is to have a "text-app" that sends OSC to the
      pluggo. Yeah... I know.. Oh, I believe the "dialog" also works still.
