File editing problem

Apr 20 2009 | 9:17 pm

Hi there,

I’m having a strange problem on winxp where I
1) save a .js file (with the Max-based editor) and then
2) open a Max patch up.
2a) An example of the result is that a message typed as [asdf] prints out [aoeu] and all of my keymappings are wrong. The right key obviously creates the wrong action in M5.

Has anyone come across this?

Max5 v5.0.6 SP3
Pentium 4 2.8Ghz
1.5 GB RAM

Let me know if anyone needs more details in order to test…

Sounds like you have somehow managed to switch between qwerty and dvorak keyboard layouts. I haven’t worked on a windows machine for a while so I can’t tell you exactly what you need to look for but in the control panel their should be some options to change your keyboard settings.

yea; that’s what the culprit was.
found it under

> control panel
> regional and lang options
> text services and input languages
