Re: Know the amplitude (volume) of a file.

Not to open another topic, on one occasion I met a puglin that makes the audio uniform (single volume) mainly the voice. Do you mean that it made loud voices quieter and quiet voices louder? If so, that may have been the Nyquist plug-in: "Level Speech" which you can get here: https://wiki.audacityt...

Re: Pathnames longer than 256 characters not supported

The "pathname" refers to the full name of the file including it's directory (also known as it's "fully qualified file name") For example, a file called "test.mp3" that is in your Documents folder has a fully qualified file name of: /Users/ <your user name> /Documents/test.mp3 The maximum number of c...

Re: Can't remove popping sound

Zoom in close on the artefact that you can see in the track spectrogram view, then switch to the default waveform view. You will then probably see that there's a discontinuity in the waveform. Making edits at "zero crossing" points can help to avoid clicks. If that still produces a click, use a shor...

Re: Add option to swap the ok-cancel buttons order in the appropriate dialog windows

The issue is present on Xubuntu Linux.

Observe that in File dialogs, the Cancel button is to the left of the Save button:

Re: No line indicating the current position in 2.4.2

Is this a bug? Audacity does not yet fully support Wayland. This is already logged on the Audacity issue tracker, but it probably requires Audacity to be built with WxWidgets 3.1 (which is already stated to be the required version in Audacity's build instructions), but package maintainers have freq...

Ensure that "Bit rate mode" is set to "Constant".

Re: How to delete parts of tracks that are not clips

Which version of Audacity are you using? (Look in "Help menu > About Audacity") If you are running the current "Audacity 3.0.2", click on "Tools menu > Reset configuration" (you have accidentally messed up your preference settings). If you are running any other version of Audacity, update to "Audaci...

Re: label-sounds.ny not working for me, both mac and windows.

Mystery solved. There's a bug in "Label Sounds".

You can workaround the problem by resampling the track to 44100 Hz. See: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/tra ... l#resample

I'll submit a bug fix, which hopefully may be in time for the Audacity 3.0.3 release.

Re: Audacity Freezes Up

Is there a project size limit ? No there isn't. In the past there have been issues when the project is longer than 12 hours duration, but these are believed to be fixed. And do you have any ideas on how it was so large which so few tracks and such a short length ? While working on a project, the pr...
