multiple track editing

I’ve just put down 5 songs (stereo tracks) one after the other. My bright idea is to insert a new song into position 2, but I want to keep 3,4,and 5 in the same order without re-editing or repositioning them individually.

Is there a way to lock multiple tracks together, so that when I move tracks 3,4,and 5 the move as one track?

What I’ve had to do so far is save tracks 3,4 and 5 as one song, and import them after the new song is added. This makes future editing of those three impossible.

Any ideas?

Only Audacity 1.3.3 can do this.

In 1.3.3 you just need to highlight each track you want to move and then use the Time Shift tool normally.

OK it’s the shift and mouse click together to highlight the selected tracks. I was thinking ctrl and mouse click, as is usual in windows machines. However I’m using 1.2.6. so neither would have worked.

When will 1.3.3 be considered stable? I’ve only used it a couple of times, and it’s worked for me. I just stick with 1.2.6 because I’m used to it more than 1.3.3.
