problem with layout on startup after 2.3.0 update

I have updated to version 2.3.0 on my 2015 macbookPro running High Sierra 10.13.5 and I when I open the program the toolbar seems to all load at the center of the screen and does not move with the audacity window. I am attaching a screenshot:

That looks bad, but hopefully it’s not as bad as it looks.

  • Ensure that Audacity is completely shut down (reboot the computer if necessary, but ensure that Audacity is totally closed)
  • Select and copy this next line to your clipboard (Command + C):
    ~/Library/Application Support/audacity/
  • Open “Finder”
  • Click on the “Go” menu, and choose “Go to Folder”
  • Right click and “Paste” (or Command + V)
  • Delete these three files:
  • audacity.cfg
    • pluginregistry.cfg
    • pluginsettings.cfg
  • Launch Audacity

Audacity should now launch correctly.

wow simple, thanks!
