Gale's alternative File Menu proposal

This assumes we do not allow an "Open" menu to open audio files. If we do this we should probably stop "Recent Audio", opening audio files in the file manager and dragging audio files to the Audacity icon opening new project windows.

This scheme lets us have a root menu item for straight export and import.

  • New Project
  • Open Project...
  • Recent Projects >

  • Save Project
  • Save Project As...
