Re: Export/Save to location where file is located.

On one hand we have the mod (who today learned about launching audacity as an external editor) saying we can't have the feature implemented for fear of inexperienced users messing up their files, and on the other hand we have "trained professionals" in radio stations that can't handle the settings. ...

Re: Export/Save to location where file is located.

Yeah the convenience factor that's preventing the everyday use of Audacity in tandem with a DAW like every other editor. So potentially every DAW user. And for the fear that some users may complain IF they choose the wrong field, even after it could be hidden and turned off by default and a warning ...

Re: Export/Save to location where file is located.

You want us to pamper the expert users instead? No, i (and many others) just want Audacity to work properly in the MAINSTREAM use case i have highlighted. Please consider telling that to the developers before making your own mind up about it. I am sure they will appreciate it. The solution is getti...

For starters i said i am opening the file from the DAW.

Audacity is assigned as an external editor in my DAW.

right click on an audio item to "open in audacity.exe".

Re: Export/Save to location where file is located.

I don't think it's likely that the developers will go for that as a mainstream option because of the risk to less sophisticated users of permanently overwriting their source files without warning.
add the warning if it bothers everyone so much.

Re: Export/Save to location where file is located.

Open the file in Audacity from the DAW. (File goes offline in DAW) Edit file in audacity. Save (export audio from audacity) with one click. (no manually looking for the file path). For that to work, the imported file would need to become the default export file. I don't think it's likely that the d...

Re: Export/Save to location where file is located.

The "safety" recommendation of disallowing file write over is simply an obstacle to using Audacity in tandem with any digital audio workstation. All other editors allow this basic command You're late to this particular party. With current versions of Audacity you can overwrite the imported file. Th...

Re: Export/Save to location where file is located.

1. It would make overwriting the source file the default, which is generally a bad idea because almost any mistake would then permanently destroy your work with no chance of recovery. It is recommended to always export as a new file and keep your original source file at least until you have checked...

Re: "save", "save as" function

Steve, thanks for the reply. I implore you to implement "export to source directory" (whatever you wanna call it) so we can finally use this great programme ALL the time with our DAW's. Looks like you got a hell of a lot of feature requests there, but i'm hoping this would rather easy to implement? ;)
