Is it possible to use Int2 with GlobalChannels?

There seems to be a bug

Stable 5.2

If you carefully read the message you can see that you are somehow mixing types.
When opening the channel browser: does it say Integer32?

Either:

  • Try to edit. the type or
  • If you don’t want to use the global channel configuration consider pausing with F6, remove the channels and click Save. Then hit F9

Btw. I am curious. What do you need the global channels for?
I would advise only using them when it’s about connecting different instruments, machines, worlds. Don’t use them in patches that should be modular/reusable in their nature. Accessing “global variables” is like using Spiderweb-Glue. You don’t use it to build houses or libraries. It’s high-level stuff for the end-user building projects.

@gregsn Looks like you are right. Maybe it was created as Integer32 before and that’s one reason why it ended up with this error. Thanks for your help!

I’m making a rich UI application with the ability to edit, save and load “scenes”. I use global variables to do this, I store the application cells there, to be honest I even store the “open editor”, “show menu” variables there. It’s not a library or anything like that, it’s a specific application, by programming this application I’m just trying to find out if all the things I’ve wanted to create for a long time are possible.
