Selecting shit
show user profile  herfst1
Hey, I did this before about 2 times in the past and I can't remember how to fix this right now... if I select an edge it will only select if I select the ENTIRE edge, rather than just click on it. Does anyone remember that button I must press to deactivate that system?

Thanks... I thought it was around there.

Turns out the window crossing is not helping though, it seems that I can only select an edge by clicking on the corresponding vertex (with window crossing ticked on and off). I'm going to take a guess that the max file might be corrupt.

[edit] just fixed it. In my efforts to fix before I had ticked "by vertex," just untick it, fyi.

But cheers, Pil.

In related news, when I hold Alt and try to orbit (using mouse3) my max spazzes the fuck out (and 9 times out of 9.1, does nothing at all).

Can't seem to fix, and it's defo not my mousebutton playing up (works fine in other apps).

@ LionDebt, are you running dual monitors ? Max freaks out if it's not on the primary monitor when you alt/rotate.

Yeah been on dual monitors for years tho - Max is on primary. Figured it was something to do with that or possible driver issues. Seems to be worse if I have something fullscreen'd on the other monitor. Annoying to say the least - understatement, since Max is pretty much unusable. Restarting my PC seems to fix the issue - for a while at least.

So the Max dual monitor bug thing was never fixed?

..and yeah I assume most people here run at least 2 monitors, sounds like you have a driver fight on your hands...I don't want to say "rollback"...but I just did. :p

Nope, turns out it's a pretty big problem with 2015.

See this thread from 2014. I'm hoping SP3 fixes it... Otherwise I'm going back to 2012... The last version of Max I truly trusted.
