jit.window position (max 6) + matrox tripleHead2Go

Feb 16 2012 | 11:57 am

I am having a problem with jit.window position.
I have the screen extended with to 3 projectors (with matrox TripleHead2Go).

And when I try to define a position for a jit.window Max ignores it . (the jit window always appears in the center of the desktop screen).
If I turn of the Matrox, and only work with my Desktop screen, it works fine, I am able to define the position of the window without any problems.

I also tried it in Max 5. and it also works fine.

Is this happening with anyone else?
Is this a Bug from Max 6, or am I missing some detail?

I am using windows7 and Max 6.0.4

can you add the patch? i can test it with my triplehead tomorrow (on OSX though).

My original patch is a huge mess.
But you can try with this one. An empty example just with jit.window object and the position atribute.

In this one happens the same I reported before. In max 6, when I am with the Matro connected he ignores the position attributes (always opens the window in the middle of the laptop display).
In Max 5 it works fine.

works fine here (OSX Lion, Max604). did you check your screen positioning in win7’s display preferences? perhaps the matrox screen is located to the left of the laptop screen and you try to position the window on the right of it.

Hit dtr, thanks.

Yes, I checked, its correct.

its on the right side.

Has i said before. if I open the patch with Max 5 it works fine.
The problme is only with Max6.

is this with a max patch made for testing? Because I think that would help narrow down the problem.

I just posted this patch for testing.
The project pacth where I am working is huge, and it would be confusing. so I just post the thing that matter.

The error with jit.window happens with both.

It would help if anyone that has a MAtrox TripleHead2Go and windows 7 could test it. Open a jit.window and control de @pos normally.
