Max 6 info/window behaviour

November 25, 2011 | 1:42 pm

When you work in the gen~ object, if you start typing in an empty object you will get a list with all the possible object available. However, if you click on one you will get some info about that specific object underneath the window, In my case I cannot read everything since the text is partly blocked by the size of the window. When adjusting the window the text remains partly blocked. Anyone have the same issue?

I run latest MBP with 10.6.8

Also I noticed that the new mixer window (underneath a regular patcher window) sometimes doesn’t popup right so you cannot see everything in the window.

I can confirm these issues.

In passing, do you experience this weird window refresh issue ( )?

No, i don’t have that problem. But maybe I didn’t notice it yet. Will check.

BTW why is the shortcut for routing patch cords gone?! Bad move :-(

Hi Matpe, I also have the weird window refresh issue. Currently it happens in my bpatchers. I dont see it in my main patch yet.

The official line of thinking on this is that the text is too long (rather than the box is too small)… In any case, if you create the object and then ‘get help’ (alt-click) on it, a popup window shows the full text.
