Cannot move or edit a single track

Post by ciropinto » Sat Dec 09, 2017 9:35 pm

Hi all audacity lovers,
I am trying to edit (shift, delete or cut) a single track but each time I use either time shit tools or others,
they somehow apply my request to all tracks. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

Have you inadvertently go sync-lock turned on?

Look at the bottom of the Tracks menu.

See this page in the Manual: ... roups.html
