thanks for doing some testing. Reporting issues here is fine, though you
can also report them to the Audacity forum if you want to:
Concerning the crash, could you just clarify what you're doing in the timer
record dialog? I'm assuming that all you are doing after the dialog opens
1. You press down arrow to set the number of hours to zero.
2. You press right arrow once to move to minutes, and audacity crashes.
I'll get back to you about the menu wording, but it may not be possible to
change it at this stage in the release cycle - it depends on whether there
are other wording changes that are requested,

Thanks for the link. Do I report issues here or can you give me the
appropriate address? I will mention them here anyway to see if other can
reproduce the bug I have found.
My first issue reflects my pedantry. There are quite a few menu items
where the text is:
Overdub (on/off) checked.
I suggest simply:
Overdub on with or without the check.
The next one is a minor crash when setting timer recording. I have
checked on two machines, both running Windows 10 Creators and both with
NVDA 2017.3. The problem only occurs on one machine! If I arrow down past
0 hours I get the following error message:
..\..\src\msw\datetimectrl.cpp(95): assert "Assert failure" failed in
wxDateTimePickerCtrl::SetValue(): Setting the calendar date
Do you want to stop the program?
You can also choose [Cancel] to suppress further warnings.
Yes No Cancel

For those of you who are interested in testing a beta version of Audacity
2.2.0, this is a link to the portable version of the beta:
If you want this version of Audacity to use its own separate settings,
then after you have extracted the files, in the folder that contains
Audacity.exe create a folder with the name Portable Settings.
