I'm trying to get MIDI output from Pd working, though any object related to MIDI that I put into the canvas shows up in a comment box with a dashed red outline. This is also the case when referencing these objects in Help. I have no idea what this means or how to get around it
Objects with red outlines? (brand new user here)
What operating system?.... Which version of Pure Data?
In windows it should always work.
Do you have the same problem in the menu "Media" "Test audio and Midi"..... I expect that you do.......
You could have a corrupted download, or something blocked by a gatekeeper or some other security feature, or?
Do you have midi running well in other apps?
@jmarchuk Just a thought, if you are a brand new user I would strongly suggest that you start off with either pd "vanilla" or Purr Data, since Pd extended is no longer supported (and, I may add, was causing me all sorts of problems with crashes and overheating on mac).
