can't cut anymore


The first time I started to use audicity, it was easy to cut parts of my files. However, after a few minutes it didn’t work anymore.
Also the looks are different: it seems as if the whole file is selected, although pressing the cut button doesn’t cut the whole file. The only way I can cut is by going to the editing menu, clicking on deleting audio or labels and then on delete.

I am also having problems in creating an extra empty file beneath the file I want to edit. The English tutorial suggests a menu ‘Project’, but in the Dutch version I cannot find this menu.

Hope someone can help me out…Tnx in advance!

Please provide the information requested in the pink box above.

You mean an empty “track”?
In Audacity 2.1.0 you can create a new (empty) track from the “Tracks menu > Add New > Audio track”
