I have a question about the new Current Selection dialog in Audacity.
Previously, I used the keyboard shortcut V to select an item and E to export the entire file. Now, everything is significantly complicated, and I can’t get by without a mouse.
For example, before: V and Enter (export only selection). Now: E, grab the mouse, click on the selection, and then Enter.
That’s not all. Previously, I was able to quickly export only a portion of the audio using V and then export the whole audio using E. Now, when I press E, only the selected portion of the file is exported because the Current Selection checkbox is checked.
It is a little bit confusing for me.
Please bring back the Current selection option to Keyboard Shortcuts.
i’m using last version, but the “E” and “V” were my shortcuts. But today, with the version 3.4.1., i am not able to set the shortcut for current selection, because this item in keyboard shortcuts missing.
Now I’m on 3.4.1, but I refer to 3.3.3. and down. I don’t know exactly the name in english, because I have Czech translation, but I 'll explain it. Previously, when you selected a section of audio on the timeline, you could only export that section. I had a keyboard shortcut assigned to this. In Settings, I would look maybe for something like “export selection”?
Yes, that’s exactly what I was pointing out. Everything has to be set in the export dialog now, which is a regression for anyone using keyboard shortcuts or macros. The “Export Range: Selected Audio” option is gone here. I’m not home right now, so I can’t check if the export selection option has been renamed in Preferences/Keyboard.
