Yes, you might think there would be a way to just grab the track and move it up or down..... :D
There is - and has been for a very long time.

You just click in the Track Control Panel "white space) holding the mouse button down and drag the track up or down.

Re: Split Mp3 file into multiple 20 minutes subfiles

Re: Audacity 3.0 fiile association bug (.WAV, Win10.)

I mean Audacity CAN open .WAVs, so why can't you associate .WAVs WITH it? I only looks like you can "Open" WAV files (and other adudio files) in Audacity ... BUT what is actually happening is that Audacity is Opening a project and then Importing the audio file into that project - and when it import...

Re: Issue with Save Project menu of Windows version 3.0.2

Maybe what you really need is a permanently shown visual cue that shows the "clean"/"dirty" state of the project - but that would a) be an enhancement request - and b) many folk would likely regard it as unnecessary clutter in the GUI. This is another good idea. We can easily tell the project state...

Re: Protect a track from accidental changes?

You're right there is no track locking - and I can see that that might be a useful feature. What I would do would be - when my project is in a known good state, before embarking on experimental edits with filters I would backup a copy of my project that I could reverto to.
