Generate silence and sync-lock tracks [SOLVED]

I often need to generate silence into an audio track. When I do this, however, the labels track gets thrown off, even with “Sync-lock Tracks” turned on. For example, if I generate 1.5 seconds of silence, my labels are 1.5 seconds off. My work-around is to generate the silence in an empty track and then paste that silence into my main audio track. The Paste command does not mess up the labels and everything stays sync-locked as it should. It would be really nice to be able to generate silence into a track and keep the labels sync-locked with the audio track. Other generate commands, such as “Generate Noise,” exhibit this same behavior.

OS: Windows 7 64-bit
Audacity version: 2.1.2

Thank you!

So in general, “Generate” has this problem.


This has been fixed in the current development code, so the fix will be in the next release.
