Possible bug labelling tracks

Post by richard55 » Tue Aug 14, 2018 7:21 pm

I have recently upgraded from v2.1.1 to v2.2.2 on a Windows 10 platform and the track labelling now seems inconsistent. In the 2.1.1 version, I could hit Ctrl-B or Ctrl-M to enter track markers and the focus would stay on the track label ready for typing in the label name. In version 2.2.2, this happens with Ctrl-B, but not with Ctrl-M (which, annoyingly, is the one I use most often). After hitting Ctrl-M, the focus returns to the main window and anything typed is effectively a command for Audacity. Is this a bug?

Yes, it's a bug. It has been fixed for the next release (Audacity 2.3.0) which is scheduled for release in September.

Thank you. Be great to get it sorted.
Fantastic program - the more I use it, the better it seems to get.
