Object auto-resizing

Jun 12 2009 | 3:11 pm

In max 5, after typing in any object, the object box used to resize itself but now doesn’t. Where can I reset this neat little behavior? Thanks.

Check the "auto fix width" box in preferences. You can also highlight and press control/command + j too.

Option Menu
-> check "auto fix width"

For some reason I didn’t think it would be in the Font options of the preferences or even right there in the options menu. Thanks for the qucik tip!

also if you hold option (or alt) when you click outside the newly-created box (comments and messages too), it will do the opposite of the currently-selected setting. so you can generally have things auto-fix-width, but sometimes have them not, or vice-versa. very handy.
