I have just started using Audacity and have encountered the following problem that has to do wit what appears on the screen. I would like to save multiple audio files automatically with labels. The first thing that I am asked to do is to “choose New Label Track from the Project menu”. However, I do not see "Project listed on the tool bar. What I see – from left to right-- is File, Edit, View, Transport, Generate, Effect, Analyze, and Help. Do I have an old version of the instructions for using Audacity, or an old version of the application software? Please advise as to how I should proceed to do what I want to do.
You have very old instructions.
The current version of Audacity is 2.1.1 and is available here: http://web.audacityteam.org/download/windows
You can check your current version number by looking in “Help > About Audacity”.
The recommended “Audacity 2.1.1 installer” includes the full manual in the Help menu.
Thank you. I suspected that might be the problem, but wasn’t sure whether it was the software per se or the instructions. I have downloaded the manual for the 2.1.1 version and will check it out later.
