You will be glad to know, jpr, that we have fixed this for 2.3.0 (I just QA tested it)

It's also led us to tidy up the behaviors with regard to Rates - there were a few rough edges ...


Revised fix for Bug 1977 - Using Spectrogram Settings in TCP causes Audacity to reset Project Rate to default 44100 Hz
This revised fix:
- No longer attempts to drive "Default sample rate" from the selection toolbar.
- No longer drives 'Project rate' direct from prefs. It's usual it comes from the project.
- Instead 'Project rate' in the project might change if 'Default sample rate' pref is updated, but ONLY if the project has no tracks.
- When 'Project rate' in the project is updated, that is now always signaled to the selection toolbar. Previously it wasn't.
2.3.0-alpha-124

Just tried out the current master and can indeed confirm the issue is competely fixed. Many thanks for changing this so quickly. This will make the already awesome spectral editing tools yet a little more productive for me to use.

Thanks for the testing jpr (as a QA bod this is much appreciated)

I'm glad we've been able to nail this down for 2.3.0

Thanks,

Peter
