Audacity Plugin Download Issue

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 macOS you are using,
and the exact three-section version number of Audacity from "Audacity menu > About Audacity".


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.

You can force Macs to hide filename extensions and that can cause many of the same problems it does on Windows.

Are you set to show the whole name? (attached).

From the desktop > Finder > Preferences > Advanced.

UPDATE: I am now able to download the file and change the extension to .ny and activate for use as a plug-in in Audacity. Thanks for the input. Very helpful.

I am also having these exact issues and I do not know how to fix this. I'm using mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 and Audacity 2.2.2. ACX Check plug in turns to txt file. Even after changing it back to .ny. All help appreciated.

Ensure that your Mac is showing you the file name extension. It can get very confusing if the computer is hiding it.
