Re: Update to New Apple M1 chip (macOS BigSur)

The jerky movement of the recording/playback cursor is an issue with Macs that have 30-bit displays, which I imagine the latest iMacs have. With Audacity not running, right-click on the Audacity icon and select Get Info. In the Get Info window, check "Open in Low Resolution". Does that help? -- Bill

Re: import option: read file from card?

That was the "read directly from uncompressed files" option. It was removed some time ago (before 2.4.0).

Re: Cannot open Audacity project

What version of Audacity are you using?

The file "AI interview.aup" should not be inside the...
