Split clip shortcut no longer working v2.3.0

The split shortcut seems to no longer be working in v2.3.0 and is no longer listed in the shortcuts in the manual. Is there a workaround? Maybe a way to map custom shortcuts? Any ideas?

That’s one of the most useful shortcuts in my opinion and it’s really weird to not have it.

If you mean the “Ctrl + i” (“split”) shortcut, it is in the “full” set of defaults. See: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/keyboard_preferences.html#defaults

I’m thinking that this is one shortcut that we should probably move into the reduced Standard shortcut set.


Or if you don’t want/need the Full set of shortcuts you could just add Ctrl + i (or any other key/key combination) to your shortcuts.

I agree. It is definitely one shortcut that I miss if I don’t have the full set enabled. Several other people have also written in about the “loss” of this shortcut.

OK - so I’ll raise a P4 enhancement entry for it on Bugzilla


Done - see: https://bugzilla.audacityteam.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2051
