Hi everyone, I am doing an audiobook at the moment and Audacity isn’t making me export to Mp3 a chapter that I have spent a long time on. I click on export to MP3 and nothing happens. It’s always worked fine so far. Saving as an Audacity project, exporting as anything else, mix and render, resampling, even copying and pasting it to another audacity file, resetting configuration…I’ve tried everything but nothing seems to work.
I am quite worried as I can’t keep using Audacity but I really need to make this deadline so I am not able to stop. Can anyone please help me solve this issue without having to restart the programme and loose everything? I also have the latest version of Audacity 3.2.1 on MacOs Monterey.
Don’t “quit without saving” - you will definitely lose your work. The following may work. Since you can’t save your project you have nothing to lose. I’ve never encountered this problem so I don’t know for sure that this will work.
Do Apple (menu) > Force Quit then choose Audacity. The unsaved project should still be available in the Audacity temp directory and you should see a project recovery dialog next time you launch Audacity.
