Beginner Help

New user, thanks for an awesome piece of software!
I’m helping wife record a book and every time we stop and start a new chapter, we get a new track.
How can I lock the system onto one track, so we always take up where we previously left off?
Other than this, the system is doing well!

To continue recording on the same track , press “Shift”+“R” keys , ( see … append recording ).

This will change in the next release of Audacity when recording on the same track will become the default.
