Works sporadically

I’m running Audacity 2.0.1 on Mac OSX 10.6.8. When I’m editing a piece of music I only seem to be able to perform one edit. Then everything (cut, export, etc.) greys out and I need to close the file, save as an .aup, and then reopen to perform another edit or to export as any other kind of file. What’s going on, please?

You must have the track in STOPPED mode and not just PAUSED in order to do any editing.

Got it. You’re right. Thanks so much for your very quick and excellent reply. Quite obviously, I’m new to this.

At some time or another, we all were new to this! Glad you’ve got it working now.
