I’ve suffered from the program not replying four times the first thirty minutes since I downloaded Audacity. Meanwhile everything else on my laptop works except for it (actually I’m typing this with the unconscious program there right now).
Each time I restarted my laptop and reopen Audacity and could use it normally again, all the way until I tried to key something. First I thought it was a specific problem about the “ctrl” key, but I figured it happens with any key after it got stuck again when I attempted to rename the new file.
I don’t know whether this is a problem of this very laptop of mine, or some wrong steps that I took, or a bug of Audacity, but I really do hope this problem to be solved asap because it’s not easy either reminding myself not to use ctrl + z and all the other keys with any reason, or working fast on my current project having to restart the laptop once in a while. I’d also like to know if there’s a better solution than restarting the laptop when this occurs again (due to another accidental key).
Thank you very much
ps. I wonder if a problem like this can be called a program crash. According to Wikipedia, the program exits in a crash. Audacity did not exit in my case. I couldn’t even shut it down since it didn’t even reply to that. So I’m asking btw if this can be referred to as a crash. Just curious.
