Just something that reports clip focus area and which page is active without interrupting the regular functioning of those buttons. That is, I’ve figured out how to grab the messages sent when I change to page "user 1", for instance, but as soon as I grab that message it stops performing the "change to user 1" function and is only routed to whatever I have watching it. I want to monitor those messages without interfering with them.
This thread can be disregarded. Solved all my problems with the live api, which I had been intimidated to approach, but am getting comfortable with, thanks to the max4live.info tutorials pid pointed out to me.
