Recording overlaid icon issue

Audacity 2.1.2

One of our engineers reported a recording icon issue. During the recording session the record button was overlaid with a fast forward image.

I have a photo of the problem but as this is the first forum session I have posted cannot find anywhere to upload the jpeg image.

Any advice would be appreciated

If you hold down the Shift key, the Record button gains a “Skip to end” overlaid icon. This is to indicate that Shift+Record will record from the end of the current track (it’s called “Append Record” because it appends the recording to the end of the current track). For more info, see here in the manual:
