Note that embedded white space between audio clips is treated as (an made into) silence on Export - which means that if tou re-imported such an audio file you would see silences rather than white space.

And if we did treat white space before audio as silence the export, followed ny a later import would hav the leading white space changed to silence.

I assume that those behaviors are or would not be a problem :?:

Steve and I discussed this at length yesterday - an as a result of that I have logged this issue on our bugtracker: https://bugzilla.audacityteam.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1904

We probably do not have time to address this for the upcoming 2.3.0 release - but hopefully we may be able to for the subsequent releases.

That’s incredible, I really appreciate you putting it on the list. Any time is better than never.

It's been bothering (some of) us for a long while now - it's just that no-one had gotten around to putting in the thinking time required.

Hopefully we can get it sorted now that we have articulated the problem and a probable solution.

I did, as promised, update the Manual page for 2.3.0 to document current existing behavior and Steve's simple workaround - see: https://alphamanual.audacityteam.org/ma ... nu:_Export
