Using Max on windows, I’m facing the following problem using keyboard shortcuts within my patch:
the "key" object doesn’t seem to work when I hold the ctrl or alt key. Which means I can only use the combination of "shift" and other keys to make keyboard shortcuts.
But I want my patcher to recognize combinations like "ctrl-alt-c" and such too. How is this possible?
Thanks – Tarik
Check at the bottom of the key object for similar objects! theres one called modifiers which has the modifier keys.
Always worth having a look at similar objects before posting
Well yes, I know of the modifiers object, but that still doesn’t solve the problem that the "key" object doesn’t report which key is pressed once I hold the control or alt key down…
Well, now that makes me feel very stupid and happy at the same time! Indeed, this was a question that shouldn’t have been posted but thank you for answering anyway.
