Where is the Genre Listing Located?

Hi, I’m trying to do a small edit to how the genre list (for tagging the metadeta of a file) is saved. I’ve added custom genres and tried to find the file where they’re stored in through the console, but I’m not coming up with anything. Where exactly is the genre list saved?

What change exactly do you want to make?

When you save a custom genre list you can find it at genres.txt in the Audacity folder for application data .

If you want to modify the list so that when you reset it, it defaults to something of your own choosing, see src/Tags.cpp in the source code. Changing that requires rebuilding Audacity.

If you save a metadata template you can see where it is saved.

If you save metadata in an Audacity project, the metadata is stored in the project file.
