Can I Search Clip Names?

Hi All,

I’m a novice editing a large audio file, and I’ve been using clip names to identify specific chunks. Now I’m at a point where I want to find specific clips (out of hundreds) to relocate, but I’m not finding any way to search my own clip names. Is there a way to do this natively in Audacity, or is there a plug-in/extension that will at least comb through my clip names and create some sort of index (however crude it may be)?

Thanks, and sorry if this is a redundant question – I did search the forum prior to posting (albeit quickly) and didn’t see an obvious answer in either the forum or FAQs.

No. Clip Names were only added fairly recently. You could make an Enhancement request here: Issues · audacity/audacity · GitHub

Well, if you really want something “crude” you could take a look at GitHub - audacity/audacity-project-tools. The -extract-project and/or -analyze-project may contain the tools you are searching for.

Thank you so much for providing that information. I’ll take the requested step of submitting an Enhancement request (or at least considering if it seems worthwhile “enough” to suggest) and keep this in mind moving forward!
