Having Difficulty with Sync-Lock Tracks

Recently upgraded to Windows 10 along with Audacity 2.3.0 and am having an issue with Sync-Lock Tracks (On/Off). When this command is checked on, the sync-lock icon in both the audio track and the label track appears. When I uncheck the command, the icon disappears. To me this is expected. However when I am editing the audio track and I generate silence in the audio track, if the sync-lock icon is present I would expect the labels to the right of my insert to move along with the audio by the amount of silence I generate. Oddly this does not happen. Is there some other setting that I’m overlooking? Thanks.


How many audio tracks and label tracks are there in the project?
Counting from top to bottom, what is the order of the tracks?

There is only one audio track open. While it is open and recording I will use to insert labels. This opens the label track immediately below and labels are inserted at various positions. After the recording is complete, when I try to generate silence, the labels do not move position. Oddly if I delete audio, the labels do move as expected.

It appears to be a bug in Audacity 2.3.0, which has been fixed for the next release of Audacity.

There is now a “release candidate” (a pre-release version) of Audacity 2.3.1 available for testing. See: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/release-candidate-for-audacity-2-3-1-now-available/52058/1

Thanks for the info. I’ll take a look at the release candidate and give it a go.


The release candidate 2.3.1rc3 does indeed fix the issue. I’ll probably keep on using it until the 2.3.1 release becomes available. Thanks for the help and responses.
