Recording

Hi
I recently downloaded 2.2.1 and honestly I'm not thrilled. I don't like the look and I find some new features annoying.
Previously, when I needed to re-record a portion of a recording, I would stop at given area and hit record. Audacity would then open a new track, I would record, cut and paste it into my existing track. Now, when I attempt to do that, the program acts as if I'm appending a previous recording.....it picks up at the end of my previous recording and records.
I've tried shift record and ctrl record but they don't seem to work.
Any suggestions.....
If not, can I get back to the last version of the software?

This was a change that was introduced in version 2.2.0 to always append to the current track.

If you're wanting the old behaviour by default, check "Always record on a new track" in the recording preferences.

What exactly did you find so "very very annoying!!!" ?

Hi
You solved the most annoying problem for me so I guess the only complaint I have is the graphic layout. It doesn't seem as clean as older versions, but I can certainly live with it.

Always a pleasure
