Audacity shutdown with export dialog.

Hi all,

I do not know whether this is already known issue.
I found the recent Audacity (2.2.1) was shut-downed when I tried to "export" audio as wav.
The file dialog window came on but after that "bug report" related dialog box appeared and Audacity was shut-downed.
This thing happened every time I tried to export.

MacOS version: 10.13.2

Thanks

I can't replicate this with 2.2.1 (or 2.2.2-alpha) on my Macbook Pro running High Sierra 10.13.1

I have attached "debug report" files.
They generated: Reboot system --> Start Audacity --> Generate 30s silence within Audacity --> Try to export to WAV

Thanks

Are you sure that you were exporting as WAV?
The reason that I ask is that the audacity.cfg file looks very "clean", like a "first use, done nothing yet" config file, but there is an export setting for exporting as AIFF.
Code: Select all
ExportFormat_SF1=131074

Perhaps that's normal for a Mac, but it looks wrong. I'll need to check on a Mac.

Yes,

I used file --> export --> export to wav in menu.
But each time I clicked on it, Audacity stopped working (no response) and the "debug" dialog box appeared.
I do not know why AIFF thing is written on the log.

One thing I should comment: Not just export to wav, I also tried export to mp3 but the same thing happened.

Thanks

How did you install Audacity? From the DMG or from the ZIP download?

Did you previously have another version installed? If so, do you know (or can you guess) which version?
Did you trash the old version before installing the new version?

I have used audacity from 1.x version. But audacity is not my everyday app, I cannot confirm which version is the last one without problem.
I can say 2.1.x had no problem but I do not know whether 2.2.0 worked well or not. (I had installed it but I did not used it.)

In common case, I just overwrite audacity to my Application folder.
For this 2.2.1, at first I overwrote it and there was this issue.
So, I deleted audacity from Application folder, empty trash and reinstalled it with dmg file.

Although I do not think this can be possible cause: I use Homebrew and python, qt and other gnu related files are installed with Homebrew. Could this cause this issue?

Thanks
