IKB: Live 9: Max for Live Editor window not opening

  • Live Versions: 8.1 - 9
  • Operating System: OS X until 10.10.5

If clicking the 'Edit' button of a Max for Live device opens Max, but not the Editor/Patcher window, this could be happening because disk permissions are broken.

To resolve this, 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 and newer, this function has been removed from the Disk Utility. However, you can still verify and repair permissions using the Terminal application.
