This page is a workbench for testing bugs that have been fixed by developers.

See the Talk page for bugs resolved in earlier releases.


  • P2 2663 - Audacity can make unwanted moves of toolbars
  • P2 2740 - Directories in Directories preferences can be set to unwritable locations



Devel Fix-Made


Parked - because I don't have the wherewithal to test these

  • P2 2718 - Failed to execute a project file command (on server)

To be tested

  • P2 2769 - Nyquist effects cannot extend length of selected audio
  • P4 2808 - Nyquist GATE function limits floor level to -60 dB
  • P3 2782 - 8-bit FLAC samples are not imported correctly

What's to be done about this/these

  • P2 2734 - Apply macro may not create the macro-output folder in the source directory
  • P4 2763 - Certain Scriptables in Extra menu don't push Undo stack - it's for Paul as original reporter to decide whether he agrees the supposed residual is not a bug.

The Bugs tested so far on Windows and that look to be good to go so far on W10 - still to be tested on macOS and Linux
