can't import from itunes

audacity 2.1.1 on el capitan 10.11.5. i no longer have the option to import audio from itunes. it only shows garageband when i navigate to my music folder. it used to show both. it also did this on the latest release version, so i went back to 2.1.1. any ideas?

If you mean in Audacity’s file open dialogue, yes it is a bug, and is listed in the 2.1.2 Release Notes.

Even in 2.1.2, if iTunes is open, you can drag files from iTiunes to the Audacity icon in the Dock.

Otherwise you could drag your iTunes “Music” folder to the Finder sidebar to give quicker access in Audacity file open dialogues.


Thank you, I’ll try dragging to the audacity icon next time. AND I’ll read the release notes.

Thank you.

Another thing you can’t do in 2.1.2 but could do in 2.1.1 is drag any audio files directly into Audacity. We have fixed that particular problem for the next release of Audacity.


aha, thanks again
