Keyboard Shortcuts Activate While Naming Tracks

Hi folks!

OS: Ubuntu 15.10 | XFCE
Audacity: 2.0.6 | Installed from official repositories

  1. I click on a track’s pulldown menu and select Name.
  2. Keyboard shortcuts are still active.

For instance, hitting Delete to clear the name field attempts to remove audio on the track.

Anyone else have this problem?

Yes it’s a bug in 2.0.6.
It’s fixed in the current alpha code, and I think that it’s also fixed in Audacity 2.1.2. I’d suggest that you try the “Ubuntu Handbook PPA” build of Audacity 2.1.2.

Just a reminder, uninstall 2.0.6 before installing the 2.1.2 PPA from .


Thanks much!
