Unable to use space bar.

I set up the Space bar to start up recording on my laptop. I believe I used Ctrl + # to set it, but now I can’t use the space bar for any msg I want to write. There muct be a way of turning that contol off, but I can’t find it. :frowning:

Short of uninstalling Audacity, are there any answers to this?

Many thanks.

What have you got against pressing the “R” key? Hot key assignment and management is always a problem. You can’t always make the key “stick” to the application when focus is somewhere else, and Spacebar is prime real estate. Remember the fuss when YouTube stopped using Spacebar for Play/Stop?

Seems to old trick of turning off and booting up again, worked!

Don’t know what the R key is.

Until another application needs the spacebar.

It’s the natural Audacity Record hotkey. Shift-R is Append Record for adding more work to an existing stopped track.
