Hi Suf
  
If you click on the first word on the home page you will get to the home page of the main site, from where you can download, and I'd have thought relatively few people who are new to Audacity will come to the Wiki before the main site anyway. I am not sure we can justify a sentence about it right at the top of the Home Page. or even a second link to the main site. Anyway thanks for the suggestion, which I'll bear in mind.

I see we're both slipping into using <nowiki>{{shortcut}}</nowiki> for emphasising text that needs to be typed e.g.  {{shortcut|<nowiki> <nowiki> </nowiki> </nowiki>}} though we're telling others not use templates for non-intended purposes. So I think we have to either state this is an acceptable usage of <nowiki> {{shortcut}} </nowiki>; or simply '''bolden''' the text; or create another template for general text emphasis. On the whole I prefer to use <nowiki>{{shortcut}}</nowiki> only for shortcuts, and think another template is possibly best, at least for power users. If we had another template I have in mind a (not too light) blue in keeping with the site e.g.
  
 +
"You need to type <span style="background:#82CAFA; font-weight:bold"> <nowiki> <nowiki> </nowiki> </nowiki></span>  for this to work."
 +
 +
This might work better e.g. to emphasise <span style="background:#82CAFA; font-weight:bold">Pause</span>  in that "splitting recordings" tutorial.

This is an alternative lighter background:

"You need to type <span style="background:#AFDCEC; font-weight:bold"> <nowiki> <nowiki> </nowiki> </nowiki></span>  for this to work."

Is this important enough to justify another template? It's only a simple one, so would not take long.

Hi Suf

I see we're both slipping into using {{shortcut}} for emphasising text that needs to be typed e.g. </nowiki> though we're telling others not use templates for non-intended purposes. So I think we have to either state this is an acceptable usage of {{shortcut}} ; or simply bolden the text; or create another template for general text emphasis. On the whole I prefer to use {{shortcut}} only for shortcuts, and think another template is possibly best, at least for power users. If we had another template I have in mind a (not too light) blue in keeping with the site e.g.

"You need to type <nowiki> </nowiki> for this to work."

This might work better e.g. to emphasise Pause in that "splitting recordings" tutorial.

This is an alternative lighter background:

"You need to type <nowiki> </nowiki> for this to work."


Is this important enough to justify another template? It's only a simple one, so would not take long.
