Play Cut Preview (what am I missing?)

Hi,

When editing audios or lectures, many times its desirable to CUT short segments, like when the speaker coughs or stutters. I see in the HELP section a Play Cut Preview with shortcut C. This would be GREAT and would eliminate trial-and-error selecting, Z (zero-crossing), cutting and test playing.

Though the Shortcut C does nothing, no preview, etc. It could be too early in the morning, so please excuse being dense.

Please state which version of Windows you are using, and the exact three-section version of Audacity (look in “Help > About Audacity”)

If you are using the current 2.1.1, the special playback commands do not work, due to a bug.

As a workaround, each time you open a new project window, press Record then Stop. You can close the recorded track afterwards.

It’s Audacity 2.1.1 running on Win-7, 64 bit.
