- This is a companion list to the Documentation Checklist
- Tweak all wording of built-in 'innertext:' help in file HelpText.cpp, including:
- [GA] adding some help text for export
- [GA] add text to 'innertext:recording' page about enabling monitoring.
- [GA] In inner text for unsupported file format, remove reference to FLAC being unsupported. Draft submitted to devel-list to cover these three items

"Start and stop must be postive and greater than 0"
"Start and stop must be greater than 0"
Auto save interval:
"Auto save every [ ] minutes"
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).
"Show Splash Screen at program start up"
"Show Welcome Message at program start up"
AFIK it is not referred to as "Splash Screen" anywhere, but "Welcome Message" - GA
Save Changes? Dialogue with empty Project
Make Cancel to be the default button, not Yes (Yes as default is too dangerous). Then change text of dialogue thus:
"To save the tracks you previously had, click cancel, restore the tracks using undo, and then save"
"To save the tracks that were previously open, click Cancel (highlighted), Edit > Undo until all your tracks are open, then File > Save Project"
- Dependencies dialogue: The former "Close" and "Skip" buttons now both read "Do not copy any audio".
- Export Multiple progress dialogue: "Exporting the entire project as a WAV/AIFF file" or (for MP3) "exporting the entire file..." now changed to "Exporting entire project" with (filename) in the dialogue title and (format) above the progress bar.
- Latency Shift Dialogue: In "I have brought it back to start at zero", "I have" has been replaced with "Audacity has".
- Preferences: Interface tab: "Tracks &fit vertically zoomed" changed to "Automatically &fit tracks vertically zoomed"
- "Audacious!" buttons -> "OK... Audacious!"
- "&Select all audio, if none selected, on applying effect"
+ "&Select all audio in project, if none selected"
