change fontsize of all objects at once

Aug 13 2011 | 11:10 am

How do I change the fontsize of each object in one time? At the moment I am opening each info window and change everything there but that is quite tedious. Any easier ways?

You could use the message e.g. (fontsize 25) and connect to the left of every object you wish to change but this could get messy…

Select all objects (Command-A or Edit>Select All…), then open the type menu (Command-T or Object>Show Fonts…) and change the font size. Works for changing the type face too!

go to MaxMSP -> Preferences -> Default Font Size here you can change it for whole Max/all patches.

you can also open the Inspector for multiple objects, select which ones you want and use Command-I. What fields you can change will depend on the types of objects, but most support fontsize I believe. Also is a great way to change certain color attributes of groups of objects.

You could use the object so send a fontsize message to all objects of a particular class e.g. ‘comment fontsize 20’ sent to a universal will change all comments in the patch to 20 point,

also, the Max Toolbox lets you send messages to any number of selected objects, no patch cords or scripting names needed.

I just found a nice way to change ALL objects in a file which can contain many patchers.

Open your file in Xcode. Go to find and replace, type: fontname" : "
then click on the magnifier and "insert Pattern", choose "any"
then add one more quote "

you will end up with this string on your find input field:
fontname" : "{ANY}"

Then replace it by the font you want.

This must do the trick :)
