Playback stops at clip end

I just started using Audacity 3.1.3 Windows 11, latest update.

I have a simple project with only two clips. The problem is, playback always stops when I get to the end of the first clip. I even tried putting the 2nd clip on its own track and overlapping it, but it still stops when it gets to the end of the clip on Track 1.

Is this a bug, or a new feature I haven’t quite figured out?

Testing on W10 with Audacity 3.1.3 I cannot reproduce this.

I’m suspecting that you have a selection which is just the first clip - try selecting all the audio with Ctrl+A or send the cursor back to T=0 with no slecetion present - and then press Play.


Thanks for the zippy reply. You were exactly correct. I’d inadvertantly created a Selection.

No problem - glad to have got you sorted.
