Confused with the new max6 doc / Poor search fonction in the Max Help

August 30, 2012 | 3:46 pm


I’m a bit confused with the new max6 doc, and it work so well:

1 – when i look at the [this patcher] reference in the sidebar, and click on "anything" message in the list, bellow the list in says: "See "Patcher messages" and "Scripting Messages" discussion."… Which discussion? Where? the expressions are blue like links so i try to click on them but no, nothing appears.
2 – So I go to "Max Help" and search for "Patcher messages", but this doesn’t work, nothing shows up! …this is because this buggy Search fonction in the Max Help only work for single words, not two words together… Hmm.

Hi Alexandre,

Currently, these entries do not work as links. I’ll take a look to see if we can make them do something.

With the next update, search functions will hopefully be a better experience. Your search "patcher messages" should find a result in the thispatcher reference page.

>"Your search "patcher messages" should find a result in the thispatcher reference page."

You mean, now or after next update? Right now, "patcher messages" doesn’t find any result because the max help search seem to only work with a unique word.

trying to find list of all messages that (this)patcher accepts
only thing i find is
See "Patcher messages" and "Scripting Messages" discussion.
what does that mean???
i searcher in patcher and this patcher reference, but couldn’t find what i’m looking for.

Searching "thispatcher" return the thispatcher reference within Max or in the browser.

"Patcher messages" and "Scripting Messages" links are still broken in 6.1.3 and the search doesn’t turn up the lists.
