Selecting in chunks


Installation: Windows 7 Pro SP1, Audacity 2.0.

I have been trying to select a part of a recording to trim, but the selection jumps in accordance with the timeline numbers (i.e. if I start at the beginning of my track and try to select it will jump in a chunk to 1.0. I can’t seem to get it to ‘free select’. It’s like the ‘snap to’ function on drawing software.

Has anyone seen this behavior or is there a setting to set the ‘chunk’ size?



almost certainly you have inadvertently turned on Snap To

Look at the bottom left of the Audacity Window and uncheck the Snap To box
