editing commands randomly unavailable?


I’m using Audacity 2.1.2. I’m pretty new to editing and new to audacity. I’m editing a stereo track and encountering an issue where when I select a clip, no editing commands are available. For example I’ll try to delete it, the delete key does nothing and all the options are grayed out in the Edit dropdown menu. This started happening maybe 10 minutes into the session when before everything was working normally. Did I accidentally click some weird option?

This might be a stupid question but I can’t figure it out. Thanks!


You can’t edit from Pause. Most production tools work from Stop.

Audacity 2.1.3 has significant improvements over earlier versions.
