Missing highlight feature on version 2.2.0 and up.

I’ve been using Audacity 2.1.3 for many years and it has this very useful feature where when the selection tool is on the edge of an audio wave it glows yellow. From version 2.2.0 and up this seems to be missing and I was wondering if there is a way to enable this in the newer versions? It makes selecting specific parts of the audio much easier.

Changing the theme to Classic does not bring back this highlight feature.

You should get the yellow highlight with the current Audacity 3.0.2.
Ensure that “Snap To” is set to “None” (at the bottom of the main Audacity window).

Audacity 3.0.2 is available via the Audacity website: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/

This isn’t the snap to feature. I only have one audio track loaded.

See how the selection line is partially yellow in Audacity 2.1.3 to show your on top of the audio? I don’t get that in Audacity 3.0.2.

So I can use a little clarification myself:

  1. Audacity 3.0.2.
  2. Generate DTMF
  3. Select Audio with cursor from .2 to .6 seconds
  4. Edit > Clip Boundaries > Split: this generates three clips 0-.2, .2 to .6, and .6 and up.
  5. Change cusor to Time-Shift Tool (F5)
  6. Drag third clip to the right.
  7. Change cursor back to Selection Tool (F1)
  8. Yellow guide lines appear at end of second clip, at the start of the third clip, but do NOT appear between the first and second clip.

Is this right ?

When using the selection tool and clicking the audio track a line appears over the audio track.

In the older versions of Audacity, the line would glow yellow to help show what the line on the audio track is covering.

In other words, any part of the audio that’s behind the line glows yellow to help show whats behind the line.

I wanted to know if this feature was still present in the newer versions of Audacity.
