Following the instructions on FAQ:Bugs - Audacity Manual to report a bug: I’m using Audacity 3.2.4 on Debian Testing (12 - bookworm, kernel 6.1.0-9-amd64), running Wayland.
Per the title, when I go to do a multiple export, as soon as I click “Export” I am presented with the “Edit Metadata Tags” dialog for Track 1.
I can change metadata, but then when I click “ok” the “Export Multiple” dialog comes back to the foreground, apparently focused (objects are clickable) but buttons don’t work and it makes it look like Audacity crashed.
What is actually happening is that the metadata editor for Track 2 has priority (focus?), but is hidden behind the Export Multiple dialog.
If I press Enter repeatedly (it’s the only key that seems to work - Escape doesn’t), specifically for the number of tracks that I am trying to export (minus one) then the export starts normally, indicating that the “hidden” metadata editor is actually receiving my keyboard inputs (essentially, I’m triggering “ok” in each hidden window) despite it being “hidden”.
I tried to drag the “export multiple” dialog somewhere else, but like a lot of GNU/Linux software (I don’t think this happens on Windows?) trying to drag a dialog will drag the whole “window tree”, and since the metadata editor dialog is smaller than the export dialog, it stays hidden.
Is there a way to force the “Edit Metadata Tags” dialog to go on top of its parent?
