Hello there! First time on the forums, but have been a long-time Audacity user for personal projects.
So I recently downloaded and installed Audacity 2.2.0, and I realised that you can no longer loop from a specific point of the track. That is, let’s say we have a 60-second track. I hold SHIFT, then click on 00:30, then unlike previous versions, this version will simply play from the start (00:00) and loop.
Last time, I can start from 00:30, all the way to the end, then loop. This helps me with larger files, because I can simply SHIFT + Left Click to the last few seconds, and just let it loop quickly.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. It is a bug. The old behaviour ‘should’ still happen, but I see that it no longer does.
I’ll log this on the Audacity bug tracker and hopefully it can be fixed soon.
