User Interfaces in Max for Live
Device Width and Height
By default, the width of a device created in Max for Live is based on the contents of your device patcher. It will be slightly wider than the visible objects in your device. Alternatively, you can explicitly define the width of your device to any size. If you change your mind, you can always reset the device width to the default behavior. The height of all Live devices is fixed at 169 pixels.

Using Presentation Mode
Once you have your Max device up and running, you may want to present the user with only the user interface objects. Given the relatively small height of the Live Device view, it may be desirable to think of your interface separately from the logical position of the user interface objects in your patcher.
