I’m running Audacity 2.3.2 under 64-bit Windows 7 Pro.
I’m screaming in my head about the absurdly frustrating challenge Audacity presents by making the simple task of jumping to a specific time in an audio file like trying to build a 747 in my basement! AARGH!!
Searching the forum and the online manual to answer this question yielded only two relevant results, both of which were completely wrong! No, entering the desired time into the audio position or start and end of selection fields does NOT work – in fact, it does nothing at all. Why is this extremely basic and simple operation so fiendishly difficult for non-experts? Why isn’t there an Edit or Select or Tools or Extra menu option that simply says: “Jump to time…”? Or something at least as obvious and trivial for the user?
Now I know why I’ve always preferred Goldwave.
Ok, folks, how the hell do I jump to a specific start time and make it’s location clear?
And Audacity developers? Shape up! I’m a developer myself, and there’s simply no excuse for the byzantine complexity surrounding the simplest of operations.
