I am NOT saving a project.
I have been editing/mixing 4 wave tracks.
I then MIX them to a new track.
I then export the Mixed track(s) as a WAV file and save it to the directory I choose.
Today, the file I want to export as a WAV won’t save to the directory I choose.
It wants to save it in the directory where I imported the four tracks that I edited. The filename I entered is also changed to a “track#” instead of the name I entered.
I can correct the filename and save the mixed WAV. But then I have to move it to the directory I originally wanted to save it to.
Issue still exists.
I select the mixed track, Export to WAV. The directory where I want it saved is opened but if I don’t enter the .wav extension, it opens the directory I imported the original tracks from, and also changes the filename to ‘track,#’ etc.
I cancel. I export to WAV again and add the .wav extension to the filename and all is good.
Today I’m working on tracks from a different directory.
When I want to export a stereo mix, Audacity goes to the directory I was working in yesterday. I have to find and choose the directory I imported the tracks from TODAY to save the mix.
Then, when I want to save the edited tracks, same thing: goes to the directory I was working in yesterday.
Some of the songs have identical Names! This is all dangerous to me if I don’t pay attention to where I’m saving to! I could easily overwrite a file!
I think I’m going to reinstall Audacity and see what happens!
