Macro issues in version 2.4...

I’m using the last version of Audacity (2.4.2) and found this problem: I create a Macro, put a command in it, and apply it… And the focus goes automatically to the first track. This has caused that many of my macros are not working well. For example this one:

Toggle Focused Track
Move Focus to Previous Track
Toggle Focused Track

Is this a bug? How can I fix it?

Thank you very much for your answer,

I think it will be fixed in the next version.


As mafg1953’s link indicates, it’s not really a “bug”, but rather a “missing feature” which has now been added for the next Audacity release.

As a workaround, I wrote a little plug-in called “Select Focused Track”. See:
