David, I think that explains it. Am I right that Steve is putting each song on
a separate track? Sneaky of them to switch the checkbox.
One reason I like using labels on a single track is that one can quickly flick
through the songs with alt+right/left arrow. But more than one path to the top
of the mountain.

since Jim gave this method for splitting tracks, how any leading blank space is
handled when exporting has changed. Now, by default, any blank space is treated
as silence. But there's an option so that you can have the previous behaviour,
where the blank space is ignored. In preferences, Import/export category,
there's an ignore blank space at the beginning check box, which is not checked
by default. Check this to get the old behaviour. Here's the page in the manual
for that category:

Hello All, I have an album recorded on one track. Three years ago I digitized
about 30 cassettes with version 2.1.3 using the clip boundries method presented
by Jim g. It worked great for me. I’m now working with windows 10, version
2.4.2 and am having all kinds of trouble. After splitting all the tracks and
naming them I use Export Multiple and all seems to go well. Then wen I go to
play the tracks the first one plays perfectly. Then each consecutive track has
a long period of silence before playing the music. It seems that that period
of silence increases with each track. It’s getting quite frustrating. For the
split I start out with the first track selected. I hit Control A then start
the play. At the end of the track I hit left bracket then the space bar. I
then go to the edit menue and do the new split. I hit enter to unselect the
track and move to the next and follow this to the end. I’ve done the same
thing using X to mark the split point. Both ways produce the same result. I
think something must be going haywire in the export process. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
