i saw a post last month about this, but it quickly digressed.
is there a way? i mean, i can end an email, or even delete my entire home folder using a command line interpreter, so surely there must be something to clear the max window??
i’m pretty sure you can’t.
i’ve seen an external that clean the max window by posting a lot of blank lines. but i think it’s not really what you want…
oh well. guess i’ll have to click that little button all by myself. jeez…
it could be done using osculator… but i think it’s easier to click…
send osc messages from max to osculator that triggers the keyboard shortcut chain (+M, +A, +X) in max/msp.
but it’s like killing a fly with a dozer.
It can be done without OSCulator using a series of keystrokes:
+M, +A, +X, +`
And focus should return to the patcher you started with. And it spells out MAX, so that’s kind of a bonus.
If you want to preserve clipboard contents:
+M, +A, [delete], +`
