why is my undo not working

Cntrl Z (undo) not working.
It appears to be turing a parameter on and off inside Buffer shuffler (max) but not undoing or redoing my larger changes.
It also appears to be slightly indiscriminate, working sometimes and not others.
Any ideas? 
Very frustrating.

    Some Max devices *keep* sending commands to Ableton that it interprets as user actions, presumably Buffer Shuffler is doing that (is that the original or v2.0 version?). You'll find in instances like that Ableton constantly appears that the project has changed even if you haven't done anything!

    Unfortunately the only way round is to find a Max device that 'behaves itself'. Here's the grizzly details if you're interested - https://cycling74.com/forums/topic/parameter-modulation-without-adding-to-undo-history/

    Undo is very buggy for me too, but nothing to do with M4L (i don't use it). Sometimes i will get 1 or 2 levels of undo, but 90% of the time i get "Enable Channel 9" as the only undo / redo event available... and this is across every project! Something messed up with 9.6 as this was never an issue before. It's unbelievably frustrating.. let's get this fixed Ableton!
