Projects with several tracks

Hi Audacity-community,

first I want to apologize for my bad english, I chose this forum too because the german forum seems to be very inactive.

My problem is that I edit projects with several tracks on audacity v.2. If i want to mark a place in a track, I automatically mark it in all the other tracks. If I want to delete or cut it out it does not happen in the track I want to edit; It happens in all the tracks I have. So I have to copy every track I want to edit into a new audacity window/project and after editing copy it back to the main project.

How could I do this better?

Thank you :slight_smile:

Check that “Sync-Lock Tracks” is not enabled http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/sync_locked_tracks.html
You should then be able to select and delete from one single track.
