Known Major Issues at Release


Known Issues

2355Go to System Settings and open Keyboard/Shortcuts setting and set the Keyboard Access to "all controls". Control+F7 will toggle this setting as well.
1071GROUP: Effects and Analysis
  • (Linux) On Ubuntu with the Unity interface enabled in audacity.desktop, previewing a built-in or Nyquist effect or generator in one project then opening the same effect or generator in another project will cause a crash. There may sometimes be a crash if opening any built-in or Nyquist effect or generator in another project when such an effect is already previewing.
1314GROUP: Interface
  • (Linux) Audacity currently does not support being extended across multiple displays, so that Audacity is visibly straddled between monitors. If Audacity is quit when the greater part is on the primary monitor, Audacity reopens centred on the primary monitor. If Audacity is quit when the greater part is on the secondary monitor, Audacity reopens on and at left of the secondary monitor.
  • 1834Group: Interface
  • On Linux if you have no local Manual installed, when you use Help > Quick Help you get two dialogs (instead of the single one expected). One of these dialogs is empty.
  • 1713GROUP: MIDI
  • (OS X and Linux) Note track playback requires additional setup on Mac and Linux. See these pages on the wiki for Mac and Linux
  • 1826GROUP: Playback and Recording
  • (Linux) Dropout detection may not work.
  • 2201Group:Linux
    • Audacity does not follow the XDG Base Directory Specification
    276GROUP:Miscellaneous platform-specific issues
    • (Linux) A playback or recording freeze, recording dropouts or fast playback may occur when using PulseAudio. Freezes may be caused by repeatedly starting and stopping playback or recording in quick succession (or by holding down the Play or Record button).
    306GROUP:Playback and Recording
    • (OS X and Linux) PortAudio's default latency values which are used when recording with software playthrough are much lower than Audacity's default "Audio to buffer" setting. This may cause playthrough or recording glitches when recording with software playthrough enabled, especially when using pulse on Linux. Workaround for Linux: record from an (hw) device instead if software playthrough is required.
    2361Linux: High-dpi display is not supported. Workaround: Set Desktop font scaling small enough to make Audacity usable
    2678When building from source, ensure that the source tree path does not contain any space characters.
