today I installed audacity and I tried to delete part of an audio file.
I selected the part of the file i want to delete and I see that the segment is marked with the gray arrow.when the part is selected, the play back starts automatically .at the very moment that the playback ends, the segment is not marked anymore.
the menu edit → delete is then greyed out.
if i activate the setting “select all audio in project if none is selected” then the menu is not greyed out but the entire file is deleted.
How can I keep the segment selected and successfully deleted ?
Thank you for your help !
