Auto-Fit WIDTH and HEIGHT

Post by DjBR » Thu Nov 23, 2017 1:56 am

Hi.
I'm using the new Audacity. Latest.
I figured that the ability the track opened with Full Width setting is gone.
I still can tick the optios automatically open with maximum vertical height.
How to achieve this?: automatically when opening a FILE?

It has only gone when using the "File > Open" menu, and it has only gone temporarily - it will be back in the next release.
If you use any of the other methods for importing audio files (drag and drop, or "File > Import" or "Ctrl+Shift+i") then you still get the track fitting horizontally.

To fit hight automatically, enable "Auto-fit track height" in Preferences: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/trac ... ences.html

"Auto-fit track height" doesn't seem to do anything me in 2.2.0 , (or 2.1.3) : No automatic vertical zooming occurring ...

It's not supposed to "zoom", it's supposed to expand the track vertically, like grabbing the bottom edge of the track with the mouse and dragging down.
(It intentionally does not affect collapsed tracks).

Ahh, now I get it. Yes, that preference does make the vertical-scale of the track fill the window.

Thank you for the information. I hope it's back in the next release.
I will use the workaround you are letting me know.
Yes, the height seems like it's working fine. Thanks.

It will be, and you can try it very soon as the release candidate is to become available imminently (it will be announced here on the forum as soon as I get the go-ahead)
