Space between clips in the same track

I want to have multiple voice clips in the same track, but spaced apart, without using the “generate silence” function. I know there is a simple way to do this, but it’s been a while and now I forget! When I try to paste a new clip into an existing track, Audacity just tacks them together. How do I tell Audacity to put something where I want it, even if there’s a gap in between?

I want to simplify a podcast project I am working on for a client by having only two tracks…one for voice clips and the other for music stings, background music and effects. As it stands now I have settled for 8 separate tracks with single different elements in each, but I know there’s a better way.



Only Audacity Beta (1.3.3) allows multiple clips per track. 1.2.6 does not.
