text in LCD object, problem with font name


    Nov 08 2008 | 10:11 pm
    hi,
    does anybody know how to get around the following problem in v4.6.3:
    i want to use a font called 'Synchro LET' in an LCD object. the problem is that LCD's font message only works with font names that consist of only 1 word.
    i've tried the 'old-fashioned' way, with numbers instead of fontnames, but that always gives me the same font somehow.
    also, the max window keeps telling me:
    "was in timer proc"
    whatever that means...
    grtz,
    xaf
    here's a patch to explain what i mean:
    max v2;
