3.2 Is Unusable for Me

Never before have I had any reason to use the forum, but running the 3.2.1 AppImage on Mint 21, I experience the following problems which were not present at all before 3.2:

–OS identifies a saved project as a MySQL file
–horizontal scroll bar not visible unless toggled to full-screen and back
–if one track is displayed, vertical size of the track jumps alternately bigger and smaller with each executed “apply”
–audio stutters at start every time play is engaged
–short highlighted sections will not play at all, thus playing very short interval “clicks” or identifying and removing extraneous mouth noises in speech is no longer possible
–playing of a highlighted section does not always stop at the exact end of the selection
–when trying to apply a wet-only reverb to a second track, Audacity crashes

I have been a user since the very beginning, but the move to 3.2 is such a backwards step, I have no choice but to move to something else that actually works.

Post back what you decided on. I found Audacity 3.1.3 works pretty well. You might decide to just back up.



That is almost correct. An AUP3 file is an SQLite database file.

This is a known issue: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues/2937

I can’t reproduce that (I’m using Xubuntu 20.04 LTS)

This is a known issue. https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues/2427
I agree that this is a major issue for detailed editing, and is the main reason why I can’t use recent versions of Audacity for production work (I generally use Audacity for detailed editing).

That’s probably the same issue as the one above.

How do you mean?

There was previously an issue where the cursor would stop moving and sound would stop playing at the end of the selection, but the Play button would still be “down”. This no longer happens for me except for “Cut Preview” (I thought this was logged, but I don’t see it so I’ll log it now)
UPDATE: logged here: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues/3792

I’m not able to reproduce this. Any other details that may help me to reproduce it?

Does it always happen?
Is that with Audacity’s built-in Reverb effect?
Does it matter if the track is mono/stereo?
Is the sample rate important?
Does this happen with the whole track selected, or just a section?
Anything else?

I’m using 2.4.2 for production work. Unfortunately the repo version has a few issues due to being built with the wrong version of wxWidgets, but it still works pretty well.
