Up till today I’ve never had any problems exporting my original recording projects from Audacity to another place on my computer. It’s worked perfectly for many months. I usually make my live recording (vocal/guitar), leave it in the Audacity recording window, then press file, export, then a little box appears, I then fill the info in, then it exports to the place of my choice. Worked every time.
But today a “different” box appears after I press file/export, it’s larger and I have to fill in a “file name”. Before I never had to fill in a file name, and the recording project was just automatically chosen for export. This larger window seems to be for files that have been previously saved and have a specific file name.
As my recording is still in the Audacity recording window it has no file name.
In Audacity under "file’, I notice that I can’t click on “export selection” (a dead link), and can only click on “export”. I can’t recall which of those two I normally use … maybe I used “export selection” but for some reason it’s now a dead link.
How do I get the “little” box to appear again, the one that automatically chooses the “current project” on Audacity?
I have Audacity 2-0-5, use windows 7 and an Optiplex 780 desktop computer.
