Assume I drag & drop an *.mp3 (stereo) file onto Audacity 2.0
Then the two audio channels appear in the main sub-window of Audacity BUT they do NOT use the full/maximum possible sub window dimensions.
Instead they are drawn in a kind of sub window of the sub window.
How can I tell Audacity to atumatically maximize the audio channel display?
When doing a Fit Vertically, sometimes a vertical scrollbar is shown and sometimes not - it seems to depend on the size of the window and the number of tracks. You can experiment with this by importing a few tracks, doing Fit Vertically, resizing the window a bit, Fit Vertically, etc. There is a minimum track size, and if the window is too small vertically to show all tracks at their minimum height then you will get a vertical scroll bar and not all the tracks will be visible.
The horizontal scroll bar should go away if you do Fit in Window.
I’m seeing space (lots of it!) beyond the end of the last track of a multi-track project (49 tracks) after having used the tool button to “Fit project to window” and then scrolled down to the lowest track and across to the far right. Is this also related to a scrolling display issue? And if so, is it also a bug?
The fact that 49 tracks don’t fit vertically is not a bug (obviously).
Personally I think that the large amount of space to the right of the longest track is a bug. IMO if the tracks fit widthways then there should be no horizontal scrollbar unless the cursor is moved beyond the right hand edge of the audio. I’ve logged this as bug 487.
Thanks. I can supply a screen grab as evidence if required. “49 into vertical does not fit” was fully understood before I started the project. It’s the horizontal behaviour that I was querying.
Horizontal space at the end of the track can be useful in several situations. For example if you have imported a number of songs from different files and you want to line them up end to end then you will need to be able to slide one track beyond the end of the previous track.
