I just made the jump to version 3.0.0 on my 16" MBP running Big Sur (11.2.3) and haven’t run into any show-stoppers yet. That said, there are two things that feel like one step-forward and half-step back.
Love the fact that I can now copy, paste and do a select all in the file name field in the Export file save dialog; but, pressing the keystrokes for them all cause the alert sound to play. The copy, paste and select all action work, but it’s annoying to hear beeps and boops each time.
The Edit Metadata Tags model saves the position, but not the size of the modal. In recent versions, if I expanded the width of the modal, it will mostly stick (but shrink slightly each time, annoying but workable). Now, it pops back to the default size. This is annoying when extracting clips and tagging a bunch of them with longer strings.
I’ll probably move back to 2.4.2 for now as #2 is a bigger annoyance when working with 30+ clips a session/day.
The “boop” comes from macOS rather than Audacity (Audacity does not have any “boops” itself), and it only occurs for me if the project already has a name and I’m changing the name of the project. For a new project (with no name), there is no “boop”, so I assume that this is just macOS alerting you to the fact that you are changing the name.
Sorry, didn’t get a chance to check back in until after work. It’s not perfect in 2.4.2 as it still gradually shrinks each time the modal is opened. It’s just that it doesn’t go back to the default size, at least that’s how it’s been since moving away from 2.1.1 due to macOS no longer supporting 32-bit applications.
Before the copy, paste or select all was broken in the Export File modal post-2.1.1, there wasn’t a system boop sound. I know that it started making that sound when it was broken in later version. It’s odd that it would still make that sound considering that no other Export File modal in other applications make that sound when pressing CMD+A, CMD+C or CMD+V (which is something I also do a lot in Photoshop, BBEdit, etc.).
