blank progress box, minor bug

Post by Steve Brown » Tue Nov 21, 2017 7:01 am

When I apply Equalization to a large project, the progress dialog box that pops up is blank while Audacity is equalizing. The previous version on my computer, 2.1.2, did not have that bug.

I can't reproduce that here (on Linux).

Which operating system are you using?
Which version of Audacity?
Are you using the "Graphic Eq" or the "Draw" mode? Does it make any difference?
Are you using a preset, or your own custom settings? Does that make any difference?
Is the issue reproducible regardless of the settings?
Are you applying to a single mono track, or more tracks / channels?
Is this with a recording that you have made, or an imported file, or does that make no difference?
Anything else you can tell us about this issue?

I cannot reproduce that on W10 CE with either the released 2.2.0 or or on the alpha for the upcoming 2.2.1 :?

Well, this is embarrassing; it turns out I mis-reported the problem. It occurs when I export audio to a FLAC file. The progress dialog box is blank, and I've attached a screen shot. This problem did not occur in the previous version of Audacity I had installed, version 2.1.2.

On Linux I don't see that, but I do see a problem. When exporting as FLAC there is no progress dialog window at all.

Good catch Steve Brown 8-)

Logged on our Bug-tracker as P3 Bug #1790: http://bugzilla.audacityteam.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1790

This is a recent bug that crept into 2.2.0 (was ok in 2.1.3 and earlier). Luckily you caught this just in time for us to hopefully squeeze a fix for it into the upcoming 2.2.1 release :D 8-)

Thanks for that,

Peter

No need now, we've worked it out, but for future reference, it is very helpful if you include the full version number of Audacity, and details of your operating system, when you report a bug.

Thanks for your report.
