I can't find the chains library!

Hi folks,

I’m running OS Mojave on mac. I’ve been asked to send a chain file on to a friend but I can’t find where it might be saved. To make clear - I’ve never used a chain before and I’m just learning about them. I searched in my mac’s Terminal for ~/Library/Application Support/audacity/ but the result says there’s no such file or directory. Is there somewhere I can find it or someway of saving it out from Audacity itself?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Depending on which Audacity you have, chains is now called "Macros"

I’ve never used either one, but can’t you Drag-Select the programming and copy - paste to a text file? Desperation method is screen capture and send it as a picture. Shift-Command-3 the whole screen or Shift-Command-4 and drag a fence around the work.

Here it is.



To get to the audacity settings folder, follow steps 1 through 4 in this post: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/resetting-audacity/50613/1
