This is a companion list to the Documentation Checklist

Summary

  • Tweak all wording of built-in 'innertext:' help in file HelpText.cpp, including:
    • [GA] adding some help text for export
    • [GA] add text to 'inertext:recording' page about enabling monitoring.
    • In inner text for unsupported file format, remove reference to FLAC being unsupported.
  • [RA] Update the Unix manual page  to distinguish between 1.3 and 1.2. In particular, remove reference to 1.3 importing multiple files from command line into the same Project, unless fixed before release (See Aim to for details).
  • Release note for loss of second imported track in Project after crash or loss of entire Project if second track is edited. Unless this is fixed before release.

Dependencies dialogue

Current button text:

"Skip"

Proposed replacement:

"Skip Copying"


Find Clipping

Current text:

"Start and stop must be postive and greater than 0"

Proposed replacement:

"Start and stop must be greater than 0"


Innertext:Recording

Innertext:Export

Latency Shift Dialog

Current Text:

"Latency setting has caused the recorded audio to be hidden before zero.\n I have brought it back to start at zero.\nYou may have to use the Time Shift Tool (<---> or F5) to drag the track to the right place."), _("Latency problem"), wxOK);

Proposed Replacement

'I' to 'Audacity'.

Comments: Whatever we decide, we should be consistent throughout Audacity. My vote is 'Audacity' not 'I' in all such cases. James 02:09, 27 September 2007 (PDT)

Preferences

Directories tab

Default temporary directory :

Currently

"/tmp/audacity1.2-%USERNAME"

Suggested replacement

"/tmp/audacity1.4-%USERNAME"



Auto save interval:

Currently

"Auto save every [ ] minutes"

Suggested replacement

None if [MM] changes autosave to strict interval saving as per aim-to. Wording needs changing if strict interval saving not implemented. Suggested would be "Auto Save interval" (fudge).


Interface tab Behaviors

Currently

"Quit Audacity upon closing last window"

Suggested change

"Closing last window starts new empty Project"

This would remove user confusion with this Preference BUT means reversing the checkbox mapping. An alternative (better than what we have now): "any close/exit command quits Audacity completely".



Currently

"Circular track keyboard navigation"

Suggested change

"Move Track Focus cycles perpetually through tracks"



Currently

"Tracks fit vertically zoomed"

Suggested change

"Auto-fit tracks vertically zoomed"
