I downuograded to 2.0.5 on 3/11/14 and the features I was used to did not appear. No fade in or fade oout i could not even clip? should i reload it?
That comment makes no sense. 2.0.5 is the latest version: http://audacityteam.org/download/windows .
I would download the “Audacity 2.0.5 installer” from http://audacityteam.org/download/windows . Install into the same directory you last installed 2.0.5 to. Make sure you check (tick) the box that says “Reset Preferences” half way through the installer then when you launch Audacity, confirm the reset of Preferences.
This should ensure that the optional effects underneath the divider in the Effect menu are available.
Then to use the effects, press the yellow Stop button and drag-select the part of the blue waves you want to apply the effect to.
