i’ve found something that can’t quite qualify as a bug in the prototype system, but that i am curious as to others’ experiences on:
summary: stack overflow when unnecessary.
steps to reproduce:
a) saving a patcher to disk,
b) instantiating it into a bpatcher,
c) designating a prototype from it so that it will appear from within the prototype menu, and
d) placing an empty bpatcher into a given patch
my particular version of max is recursing into a stack-overflow upon attempting to
e) right-click and choose the prototype from the menu
expected results: the bpatcher be updated to the intended size / content of the prototype.
actual results: occasional crashes and stack overflows.
regression: i’ve attempted to change my performance settings upon stack overflow, and then restarting max- occasionally this will help, but has not in every case.
