I can't "Repeat" my macro starting from the very first step (import2 ...)

Hello everyone,

When I use the “Repeat” command, Audacity issues a message: "Repeat requires one or more tracks to be selected.

What am I doing wrong?

I want the same exported file to be imported and processed in an identical way.

If you’d like I can paste the macro here.

I am using Windows 10 and Audacity 3.2.4

Yes. There is no “Repeat” command. You are invoking the “Repeat” effect see here: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/repeat.html, which is why audio need to be selected.

Audacity macros by design do not loop. If you need looping you will need to use Nyquist or Python.

Oh, so sorry for my ignorance. I think a lot of people (I, being one of them) would need this feature very much, as Nyquist and Python are quite difficult to learn.

You could create an enhancement issue here: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues

If it is just a matter of repeating steps with no test conditions, you could always edit your macro with notepad. You can find your macro in your Macros subdirectory here: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/macros.html#store

Could you explain what that means. What exactly are you trying to do?
