Problem deleting section

I just installed 2.1.1 using the install exe. Looking at an old recorded from vinyl project, there is a 4 second bad section that I can’t seem to delete. I select it with the selection tool but the Edit->Delete option is disabled. I tried zooming way in but still no luck. What am I doing wrong? I have some but limited experience with Audacity.
Thanks for any advice.

Most of the effects and tools will be disabled if you’re in Pause instead of Stop.


Duh. Simple as that. Thanks Koz. I’ll try to have a more challenging question next time.

It still catches me out occasionally - hence this proposal htt that I kicked off in the Audacity Wiki a while back …
