I love that you guys release updates often.
me too :)
this update also fixed a bug for the latest version of lion right? I read that there was one so hadn’t update my OS yet just incase….
hello, [join] is still buggy. http://22.214.171.124/forums/topic.php?id=37786
I can still not scroll vertical in a patch with the mousewheel if i'm dragging an object or a selection-frame at the same time.
and is that intended, that since ver 6 i see very simplified scrollbar-design in patches? the strange thing is that i see normal system default scrollbars in the max docu. (see pic)
i can not change the scrollbar colors(because there is no way to set it). the scrollbar-background will always be white no matter if it fits to the patchdesign or not.. in max 5 the scrollbar-background adopted the bgcolor of the patcher.
Please, i don't want to start hacking my own scrollbars together, especially because apart from that they're working very well.
sorry, i’m win 7 user. that’s maybe important to know.
Thanks for the note.
The join issue was never brought to our attention. I’ve ticketed it to be looked at.
The scrollbar issues you see is simply a limitation of scrollbars in Max at this time.
all the best,
I’m working on a patch aswell and I would like to change this color aswell and making a custom scrollbar is a big pain.
@Ben something about spanish help in the future? Maybe for 2018? (^_^)
"• audio: hot-swap devices without needing to restart Max"
does this mean that if my firewire audio interface gets unplugged on stage, i can reconnect it without restarting Max? Similar to how Logic and Mainstage behave? If so, that would be huge. Mac OS X 10.6.8, MOTU Ultralite…
yes. that one was long overdue…
sweet [good to see you over here too dtr :) ]
