Export audio by external program-maybe a bug?

Post by siamak » Fri Apr 27, 2018 2:14 am

I tried to export a audio using "External program" option by command "ffmpeg -i - "%f"
if I check "Show output" box then after creating the exported file, closing or OK The Command Output window will delete the exported file. Unless, manually move the exported file to different folder before closing the Command Output window.
However, if "Show output" box is not check then exported file will not be deleted.

Could this be bug? Why after the viewing Command Output window the exported file get deleted?

OSX 10.13.4
Audacity 2.2.2

so at least there is an easy workaround until it is fixed.
