Audacity (2,0,3,0 / Windows XP) allows no editing at all

Hi there,

Everything looked like I expected it to, I also could normalize the volume (worked audibly well :sunglasses:) and select/mark a certain passage - only, that was it :open_mouth:. Everything in the menues I wished to operate was in light grey instead of black letters: “cut”, “delete” aso. - and, of course, also “save” and “export”. What am I to do to activate it successfully :question:

There is an outstanding Feature Request (and accompanying proposal for enabling editing to operate when in Pause mode:

Would you like me to add your vote for it?
