Anyone else having trouble importing keyboard shortcuts? 2.4.1->3.2.3

Hi all! Quick question. I’m trying to import a fairly hefty batch of keyboard shortcuts from 2.4.1 to 3.2.3 and it says “[number] shortcuts successfully imported.”

It doesn’t appear that they, in fact, were successfully imported. I have no shortcuts. I’d rather NOT have to write them all down and put them back in, but I can if I have to. Has the XML file’s syntax changed?


I tested this on W1- with 3.2.3 and the latest stable release 3.2.4 and I cannot reproduce this.

  1. I ran 2.4.1 made several new custom shortcuts (mainly on the initial window of the dialog for clear visibility)
  2. Export the shortcuts to an XML file
  3. close Audacity
  4. purge the audacity settings folder to revert to factory settings
  5. run 3.2.3 or 3.2.4
  6. Edit > Preferences > Keyboard
  7. Observe: just the default Standard shortcuts
  8. Import the XML file of shortcuts
  9. Observe: all my new shortcuts are there along with all the Standard default shortcuts
    One oddity is that the the shortcut I assigned to Save Lossless Copy of Project in 2.4.1 showed up as assigned to Backup Project in 3.2.3/3.2.4. But remember that since 2.4.1 the save commands were reorganized when we changed to the Unitary AUP3 database project structure in 3.0.0
