Known Issues

From Audacity Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


This page contains details of Audacity problems that are identified after release of the current version, and so are not included in the "Known Issues at Release" section of the Release Notes. This page will be cleared after each release of Audacity, as all issues will by then either be fixed or appear as known issues in the Release Notes for the new version.
Please do not use this page to report problems you are having with Audacity or suspected bugs, as it will not be regularly checked by the support team. Instead, please see our Reporting Bugs page for advice on how to identify your problem and report it to us if you need to.
