Creating a Macro Script for Studio Fade Out

I am trying to create a macro to edit audio file. So, I know how to fade in from the beginning of the music file. I was able to move the cursor to the end using the project end command, but I don’t know how to select the song at the end, so I can do a studio fade out. Also, does anyone know where I can find the definitions of the commands?


The “Fade Ends” macro shows how to do that.

The reference documentation is here: Scripting Reference - Audacity Manual
It doesn’t go into much detail, so if there’s stuff you can’t work out, ask either here on this forum or on Audacity’s discord channel: Audacity

I saw this before I asked this question and try it, but it went back to the beginning, then selected. I guess the better question is: how to get the cursor to go to the end of the music file, then select whatever amount of seconds that I choose, so I can then fade it out?

See the highlighted line in my previous reply.

Sorry, but the information provided didn’t help me at all. I am trying to write scripts. I looked at the script reference page, but as stated, it offered very little to help me. For example: where would I found “select “End= “?” RelativeTo +…””? Is there a book or some other references that I can look at, which would help me write code?

Please help, because as you know, macros make things much faster.

The picture in that post demonstrates how to select the final one second of the project. The relevant command is highlighted.
