Cannot create a macro to insert silence

I’m trying to create a macro to insert two seconds of silence. No matter what I do, it inserts silence equal to the length of the project (38 minutes). I’ve tried modifying the parameters when creating the macro. I’ve tried creating a user preset in the silence generator and assigning that in the macro. I’ve tried manually creating 2 seconds of silence and then using the "Use Preset = “Current Settings” in the macro.


Try creating a preset for 2 seconds of silence, then select the preset as the “Parameters”. (This works for me in Audacity 2.3.3 alpha, and I’m assuming that it will work the same in Audacity 2.3.2, but I don’t have 2.3.2 handy at the moment.)
