In the most recent versions of Audacity(*), I am noticing a(n annoying) new behavior – If I close 1 window/project – now it closes all windows/projects
That is, If I have more than 1 Audacity window open (for different projects), and I close one project (either by the window’s ‘X’ control in title bar, or by choosing “Close” from the project’s File menu), then it automatically closes the other project’s window(s) as well. This behavior holds even if the other project was not yet saved!
It is as if by clicking Close (Ctrl-W), I am really clicking on Exit (Ctrl-Q), except that it is worse than Exit, because with Exit, I at least get prompted for any unsaved projects.
I have had to recover projects several times now as it is taking this old dog a while to learn this new behavior.
Is this intentional? Or a bug? Or just something I’m missing? (It didn’t used to do this for all the years I’ve used Audacity.)
(*) I am using Audacity 2.3.3-alpha-Nov 25 2019, on Linux OpenSUSE Tumbleweed, from the Tumbleweed distro main repository, package name “audacity-2.3.3-1.1.x86_64”. This is the latest version available on my repo. But I am not sure how long it has been up, and/or how many other versions recently have had this problem. But I’ve only noticed this behavior in say, the last month or two. I run KDE Plasma 5, and have not changed my desktop settings.
