I’m a newbie to Audacity and editing mp3 files in general. I have a song that I want to edit (chop down) so I can make a new ringtone.
Here’s what I keep running into: After I highlight (select) a section of the song I then open the ‘Edit’ menu. The options Cut, Copy, Delete, etc. are all grayed out and I can’t select them. The buttons off to the right that perform these same functions don’t work either. It seems like it doesn’t like the way I highlighted the section or something – but there are only so many ways you can click– hold down – drag – release. Grrr! I even went as far as downloading and reinstalling the program again thinking I might have gotten a ‘bad’ copy possibly, if that’s even possible, but that didn’t do anything (big shock!).
Has anyone ever experienced this? How did you go about fixing or working around it?
