Recording naration

When I’m recording narration, sometimes I need a break and I’ll hit stop. Seconds later, I hit record and I do this several times throughout the session.

When I go to edit the lengthy file, there’s a great deal of space from where I stopped recording and resumed recording. In reality, there should only be a couple of seconds of space. Has anyone else encountered this?

I recording files using a Focusrite interface on an Apple Mac Mini. It’s just annoying and time consuming.

Second concern is, sometimes during editing, I record some audio at the end of the file, copy and try to paste it somewhere in the recording and I get an error indicating not enough space, though there is clearly enough space.

Thanks for any assistance.

In Audacity preferences tick “Editing a clip can move other clips” …

Thank you, Trebor and I’ll try this tomorrow morning.
