Where is the pointer tool?

If they took away the pointer they can bloody well bring it back. The latest version of Audacity absolutely sucks~

it’s now an arrow looking like this: |< and >|. Does it not show up for you?

I see jump to the start or jump to the end but I don’t see any way to move things around like the pointer did.

oh, do you mean the time shift tool? Time Shift Tool - Audacity Manual

That got replaced years ago. You now can just grab a clip by the top part of it to move it, no special mode needed.

I will give that a try
