Max6 java & javascript edit window .. no scroll ?!

Oct 30 2011 | 9:08 pm

on my mac book pro, osx 10.7.2, I cannot scroll with the track pad in Max6 java & javascript edit windows.
I have to use the scrollbar (which isn’t really annoying!)

but I just wanted to share that in order to know if somebody sees it etc.

For me, on Win 7 things are stranger still. Typing does not happen at the cursor position but some arbitrary (and varying) number of spaces away. E.g., if you try typing at the end of a comment line, the letters appear inserted in the middle of the existing comment instead.

This is in the editor that open when I double-click a js object.

We have been trying to track this issue down for a while now and have been unable to reproduce. It may be due to some font issues. What default fonts do you have in Max Preferences? What language does your OS use?

Thanks for any clues!

Standard US English OS installation. Out of the box MAX installation. I tried again just now and it seems OK. So, this appears to be a temporary condition. Hard to track.

Wow, I’m having the same thing with an offset cursor (5 years later)! As with the above post, it appears to be intermittent—quit/relaunch and it’s back to normal.
