Audacity buttons mess up.

  • Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
    The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

It occurs to me when I try to record audio coming from another program, but only following one of these procedures:

Open Audacity in fullscreen
Press rec button
Minimize Audacity
Start playing audio in another program in fullscreen
Keep the focus on the program for at least 5 seconds
Open Audacity

Or

Start playing audio in another program in fullscreen
Minimize program
Open Audacity in fullscreen
Press rec button
Minimize Audacity
Open program
Keep the focus on the program for at least 5 seconds
Open Audacity


My version of Audacity is 2.2.0 (although it happened in other recent versions too), OS is Win10 on Asus with Realtek soundcard.

I've tried both of those several times and I'm not able to reproduce the problem. I'm on Linux and I've not seen the problem since the fix at: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/co ... bab2611c83

Forgot to mention that other windows being in focus seems to interfere with these procedures, I'd recomment keeping minimized every other program when testing them.
Either way, it may behave differently on Linux.
