As some of you know Isadora has different type's of data that a Input / Output can be, for example an Text, Interger, Float, etc.
We also have the 'range' type that is typically used for things like a Note on watcher.
I attached a simple repro file.

Here's a bit of a workaround for now though: EXAMPLE FILE
Since a Selector can store a range, you can manually input all your desired ranges into a Selector actor and then change the "select" input as a clunky way of dynamically changing a numerical range. I will say that this workaround is kind of a nightmare when you work with large ranges because you have to manually type each possible permutation into the Selector one input at a time. Likewise, if you make a mistake while typing the permutations, it'll screw with the logic you're going to need to program to get the right Selector input based on the start and end numbers in the desired range.
I made a User Actor that accepts the start and end numbers of a range using integers between 1 and 16. It has limitations, such as it can't deal with a range where the first number is larger than the second, (that'd necessitate more logic than I programmed and it would mean needing to expand the number of selector inputs to allow for those ranges, but I didn't feel like retyping all of them so I just called this workaround good enough for now).
Thanks ! Workable for now, but indeed it becomes a bit stupid when we have a greater range.

The range data type is really weird and a pain in the but to try to change dynamically.
