Proposal pages help us get from feature requests into actual plans. This page is a proposal to improve the User Interface relating to the indication of the recording state in Audacity in the Transport Toolbar.
Proposal pages are used on an ongoing basis by the Audacity development team and are open to edits from visitors to the wiki. They are a good way to get community feedback on a proposal.

  • Note: Proposals for Google Summer of Code projects are significantly different in structure, are submitted via Google's web app and may or may not have a corresponding proposal page.

Use Cases



Koz: The record button should not turn gray when the machine is performing a recording. It should turn primary red and blink.

GUI Examples

The fading smudgy red outside the circular button icon is deliberate and is designed to look light an LED light that is glowing "on".
