I’ve been using Audacity for years.
I don’t understand when they deprecate valuable tools from new versions of their program.
I really like the Paste Insert feature that was available up to version 2.1.3.
I believe and was hoping that someone can help me with a macro to add Paste Insert back into the version that I am using … 2.4.2.
Thank you for your help.
What do you mean by “paste insert” ?
That was under Edit below Paste.
It is where you can add a clip wherever you wish for it to go into your timeline.
It gets inserted without interfering with any other clip(s).
Thank you for your question.
I suspect you need to tun on the option for Editing a clip can move othe clips
in Tracks Behaviors preferences.
See: Tracks Behaviors Preferences - Audacity Manual
It used to be “on” by default - but for some reason that I can’t recall it got changed to be “off” by default.
In 2.1.3 there was a feature called Paste Insert under Edit.
I like Paste Insert, because:
a) You choose where you wish a clip to go into a timeline.
b) Then instead of clicking on Paste, you click on Paste Insert.
The clip you wanted is now on the timeline exactly where you want it to be.
I find that Paste Insert saves me so much time and effort.
Well now I’m totally puzzled - I just ran up the copy of 2.1.3 that I have and this is the Edit menu - I see no Paste Insert
It does not have Paste Insert as an option.
Earlier versions do.
I am looking for a Macro to insert Paste Insert into my current version of Audacity.
