1. Unzip the two patches in your "clippings" folder… they (the patches) are identical in every respect but name.
2. Paste in "variables_send_list.pat", should work fine.
3.Now try pasting in [via clipping] "variables&send&list.pat"… Max crashes.
Seems like the clippings menu doesn’t like any patch that has an "&" symbol in it. Who knows what else there might be. On wMax 4.5.7.
Interesting, and XP users want to try. I am on XP.
Can someone on XP please try this out for me? I’ve tested it on 2 computers using 4.5.7 and would like someone from the community to give it a whirl. 3 minute project, tops!
Isn’t ampersand a reserved character on MS-DOS based file systems?
I can never remember the entire list of reserved chars on MS-DOS/Windows, so I could be wrong. MFS/HFS/HFS+ have as many reserved characters as I can handle.
But I suspect the workaround for your problem is not to use ampersands. This is not my favorite kind of workaround, but it may be the only kind.
no, ampersand is fine on ms-dos based filesystems.
