Can't apply effects

I’ve opened a WAV file, and even after selecting audio, I am unable to apply any effects to the selection.

Audacity 2.0.6 on Linux 3.16.7 (Debian GNU/Linux Sid)

Audacity will not allow many production tools if you’re in Pause instead of Stop.

That was probably the issue. Seems to be working. It’s always the little things.

Maybe that should be changed in the FAQ as well.

Where in the FAQ?

Koz

There is an FAQ question that tells users they need to select some audio if they want to apply effects, etc.

You don’t remember where it is, either?

Here’s the FAQ that tells you how to edit even though you can’t pause on an edit point (scroll down).

Isn’t this clear enough already http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_editing.html#grayed ?
