As is often the case, what you posted is very little help. What platform? What OS version? What versions of Max/Jitter? What is the specific sequence of actions that fail? Error messages in the Max window? Can you provide us with a sample patch?
Without this basic information, it’s anyone’s guess.

Non problemo est. It’ll help you immensely next time to
provide the info up front. About a squillion people could
have looked at an example patch and give you advice
on something of that nature.
