Unresponsive umenu

May 7, 2010 | 7:09 pm

Part of a big patch is a umenu that is dynamically filled with many items. Now somehow clicking on it doesn’t expand it – is there some kind of limit on the number of items a umenu can contain?

I’m on 5.1.4, though I’ve had it happen once or twice with 5.1.3 as well.

Interestingly, if I copy the umenu to a new patch it is also unresponsive there, even after restarting Max. So the patch below should show the same behaviour (it does here, when choosing new from clipboard and pasting my own code).

Works here. What OS and computer model? Are you using multiple monitors? If so, how do you have them arranged?

Ah, you might be onto something there.

OS X 10.6.3, 2.4 GHz Macbook Pro (2007 Santa Rosa model), with two monitors, one above the other.

Yes, I moved the patcher window from the macbook screen (1440×900) to the secondary monitor (which is above my laptop, 2048×1152), and the umenu does expand properly there.

How strange :)

Also, umenu’s with just a few items work on both monitors, so maybe it could be related to the point where the dropdown list is divided into multiple columns?
