Using Audacity 2.3.0
System is Windows 10 (x64).
Graphic driver is NVIDIA 416.34 (latest for GTX 1050 card).
The screenshot tool seems to be broken. Whatever screenshot I take (window, window full, window plus) they’re all the same and all of them have the screenshot window in them.
There’s also a very annoying window titled “Long Message” (?) that opens every time I take a screenshot. I can’t stop Audacity from doing that, the Preferences menu doesn’t have any setting for the screenshot tool.
Which version of Audacity should I revert to to get a working screenshot tool (I don’t remember which version I was using prior to upgrading, probably 2.2.2)? And where can I download it?
As a workaround, when taking a windowed (not full-screen) screenshot, you could move the screenshot tool to the side so that it does not overlap the Audacity window.
Try the “Snipping Tool” Open Snipping Tool and take a screenshot - Microsoft Support
If you use it regularly, you could pin it to the taskbar or create a Desktop shortcut.
If you create a Desktop shortcut, you can also add a keyboard shortcut (right click on the Desktop shortcut and select “Properties”.
Well, I’m happy to have learned about the snipping tool. And I’m happy with Audacity 2.2.2, it meets my current needs so I’m cool waiting for a future software update.
PS: there are actually 3 bugs with the Screenshot Tool in 2.3.0: 1/ all screenshots are the same; 2/ the screenshot window is in the screenshot image; 3/ the “long message” window thing, it would be nice if we could disable that.
I don’t know what you mean.
I did a screenshot of the full window, and I got a picture of the full window (with the screenshot window visible)
I did a screenshot of the first track, and got a picture of the first track.
