Why does only 3 seconds export?

Im fairly new to the product and after reading tutorials was able to figure out how to split tracks and seems to export them separately as intended however no matter what i do only about 3 seconds of nothing is on each track on the finished mp3 file for each track. Trying to burn beloved tape collections to mp3-seems to work but can’t figure out why only 3 0r so seconds of silence only for each track.

Are you using point labels or range labels?

It sounds to me as thought you could be creating short 3-second range labels instead of point labels at the beginning of each song.
