Tweak Suggestion: Ignore Stop when not playing

I’m writing an AutoHotkey script to help with editing, using the side mouse buttons to Silence and Punch Paste. It would be more efficient if I didn’t have to pause playback, so I added a keystroke to the Stop command and had the script stop playback before executing its function. And that works perfectly… Except that now I can only execute those hotkeys while the track is playing, because using the keystroke for Stop when playback is already stopped creates an error message: “Disallowed — There was a problem with your last action…”

Can Audacity please just ignore the Stop command when it isn’t playing anything? Just be cool, man… =__=

Good idea. Let me suggesting adding an enhancement issue here: Issues · audacity/audacity · GitHub
