reading text object automatically

Apr 22 2009 | 7:47 pm

Hi, I am currently working on a project that requires pulling in a .txt file into a text object and using that data to bang certain objects. The text file I am using is being automatically updated through Mac’s automator. I would like to be able to automatically read the .txt file without having to select and approve the file every single time. Does anyone have any ideas?

thanks for your help

You’ll probably have to use [filewatch], which "notifies Max of a file change".

Great, that is exactly what I needed to know. Thanks for your help!
