Automatically stop playback at end of focused track.

I know that playback can be stopped with a single button press, but is there a setting to stop the playback when it reaches the end of the focused track rather than running to the end of the longest track. In some cases I find it annoying that I have to stop it manually every time when it reaches the end of the track when I’m just focused on a single track.

It’s also strange that it keeps running when playing a track solo, because then the user won’t hear any other track anyway.


  • Audacity 2.3.2 on Win10:

Yes, select the required track rather than just focus it - Audacity will stop playback at the end of the selection.
