Help: Problem with Max 6 object inspector

May 02 2012 | 11:45 am

The problem is that, on starting a new patch, I am unable to open the object inspector when I have an object selected. Pressing command I highlights the menu in which the object inspector option resides – but it doesn’t open. Another wierd thing is that the object inspector works in any project I created as of a few eeks ago, but as of a few days ago, it does not work in any newly created patcher.

Thankfully the project I a working on was created a few months ago so the object inspector works. But if I am to work on a new patcher I have to either deal without the object inspector – or copy and paste objects between the newly created patcher and the old project to gain access to the object inspector menu.

What OS, computer model, and exact version of Max are you running?

Try quitting Max, then trashing your Max 6 preferences folder:

~/Library/Application Support/Cycling ’74/

If you are still having problems, drop a note to support at cycling 74 dot com.

I am running OSX 10.6.8 on an Intel core i7 macbook pro. Running the latest version of Max, 6.0.4. I was experiencing a few other problems, like the greying out of functions – and constant crashing. Deleting the preference file does seem to have fixed the inspector issue! I will just give it some time and see if it has resolved everything else.
