cant export mp3!!!!

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
Please state which version of OS X you are using, the exact three-section version of Audacity from Audacity > About Audacity and whether you obtained the .dmg installer or the zip.

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.

Try exporting the music again, but don't put punctuation marks or dates in the filename. Today is not 3/14/02. It's 201210314. Computers hate slashmarks in filenames. Stay away from other punctuation marks, too. See if that helps.

Version 2.0 specifically told you you needed to install Lion to export a music file?

Yeah that was the problem at first! It even took me to link download. All I want to do is save my work and export it somehow so I can make it mp3

Lion or Lame?

It probably said you need Lame (mp3 encoder).
Include as much details as you can in your post (Audacity version, Operating System, Equipment used, etc).
Please post your question in the appropriate forum (regarding audacity version and operating system).
