I just downloaded the new release 2.3.1 of Audacity for Windows 10 Home version 1809.
These steps results in a crash to desktop:
- Record a stereo track.
- Collapse the track.
- Press the record button or Ctrl+R. Now CTD.
Upon restart I get the recovery dialog.
Back to 2.3.0 that don’t have this issue.
Good catch Uffeg
These steps crash 2.3.1 (and the latest 2.3.2 alpha test build) on my W10 laptop (ok on 2.3.0)
On macOS 1014.3 Mojave on my Macbook Pro I get thge “spinning beachball of deatth” and have to force quit - and OK with 2.3.0
So I’ll be logging this as a P1 fregression bug.
Done: Bug 2078 – Append recording into a collapsed track causes a crash
As a P1 regression it will be a must-fix for the 2.3.2 release.
Many thanks for reporting that Uffeg - and with such short precise steps to reproduce - much appreciated.
As a workaround, you can drag the bottom edge of the track up to minimise the height, rather than using the “Collapse” button.
