This patch worked in 4.6 but not in 5.0.1

    Hi. I have a patch that I used all the time in 4.6 but now trying to use it in 5 I discovered that it doesn't work. The patch uses a LCD that takes up the whole screen to simulate a counter. The problem is, once the numbers get into the hundreds, the third digit is always truncated. If you change the font to a smaller font, it works as expected. I'm on a Macbook Pro, OS 10.4.11. Thanks for looking.

      Hi. Can someone tell me if this is just happening to me. I'm beginning to think this is a bug with LCD. This patch works fine in Max 4.6 so I don't understand what's happening. Thanks for looking.

      It's happening here, too. Two things I noticed: the exact font size where it starts truncating is font-specific, and for Arial it is > 599.

      So you agree it's a bug. How do I get the cycling team to take notice so it will be fixed in the next incremental.

      I can reproduce what you're seeing. I've logged it and we'll take a look at it.
