Max for Live Editor window not opening

  • Live Versions: 8.1 - 9
  • Operating System: OSX until 10.10.5

Symptom

Clicking the 'Edit' button of a Max for Live device opens Max, but not the Editor/Patcher window.

Reason

Disk permissions are broken.

Solution

Repair the disk permissions using OS X Disk Utility:

  • Open Disk Utility in Applications/Utilities.
  • Click on 'Repair Hard Disk Permissions'.

For Mac OS X El Capitan, this function has been removed from the Disk Utility. However, you can still verify and repair permissions using the Terminal application.
