Opening File Crashes Audacity 3.0.2

Help! I’m running Catalina and using Audacity 3.0.2 and (fortunately) shortly after I saved a project, Audacity stopped responding. I’ve tried to open the file, and the same thing happens each time. Because it’s an .aup3 file, I cannot open it in a former version of Audacity, and when I tried to open it on a different computer, the same thing happens. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but nothing is working.

Has anyone else had this issue, and if so, were you able to resolve it?

Hi harriet,

do you have access to any facility for sharing the AUP3 project file with us. If so we can ask the developers to have a look at it.
If you do I can PM you here on the Forum with my Audacity email address to facilitate this.

a) It may help them understand what the problem might be.

b) There is a slim chance they may be able to repair it, or at least partially repair it.

Do other AUP3 projects work for you ?
