I just recorded a voiceover and split it into 39 sections, using the EDIT > CLIP BOUNDARIES > SPLIT feature.

Is there a way to automatically export each section as a file?
Or a way automatically generate a label for each section, so FILE > EXPORT > EXPORT MULTIPLE [Split files based on: Labels] can be used?
Starting this thread took longer than just doing it manually but you know, for next time and posterity and such.
- Double click on the first clip.
- Ctrl + B
- Alt + . (dot)
- Ctrl + B
- Alt + .
- …(repeat as necessary)
Then “Export Multiple” based on labels. (https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/export_multiple.html)
Great, couldn’t even think of the word “clips” while writing the title
This workaround definitely speeds up the process nicely, thanks!

I should try this with the hotkeys being single letters right next to one another next time…
If you do this often, you could combine “Ctrl + B” then “Alt + .” in a Macro (https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/macros.html),
and then assign a keyboard shortcut to the macro (https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/keyboard_preferences.html).
I’ve just tested, using "Ctrl + " as the shortcut (because it’s convenient and is not used by anything else).
Here’s the macro in use (recorded in real time):
- Double click on first clip to select it.
- "Ctrl + " (shortcut to macro).
- Repeat step 2 as necessary.
