empty documentation window in standalone

September 16, 2011 | 2:27 pm


Does anyone know why anytime I make a standalone in max5 the standalone automatically opens an empty documentation window? Is there any way to make this not happen? I’ve tried looking through all the forums and docs and can’t find any reference to this problem.

You mean the ‘max’ window? When you use the standalone object, it is possible to disable this window from automatically opening. There are more (actually less) advanced methods to get rid of the window altogether, by editing the maxinterfaces.json (I think it’s called) file. Do a forum search on that.

No, I really mean "documentation" window, like the kind of window that opens when you go to max help in the help menu, but empty.

Well, don’t know what caused it, but it was nothing a good ol’ fashioned clean install couldn’t fix… Problem solved.
