text object and jit.window

    Jan 21 2006 | 8:21 pm
    Hi. I'm having a strange problem that I hope someone can explain. Whenever I try to use a "text" object, a jit.window opens. The window is always named "bart2" - I usually name my jit.window "bart" - I have no idea where the 2 comes from as it is named with a "2" regardless of whether I am using jitter in the patch or not.
    This problem started occurring a while ago, but I just recently was able to track it to the text object. It began on a different machine - therefore a different install of Max, but it is still occurring on my new computer and recent install. I'm using Tiger on a G4 PB.
    I don't know if I've explained this problem well enough. I wrote support at cycling 74 about a week ago and haven't heard anything from them - it's not like them not to respond right away, so I'm worried that I am being unclear.

      It sounds like you have a patch called "text" in your search path containing a jit.window object called bart2. But that's just a wild guess.
