Not sure I’ve tried that. But I will.

Have you tried function key + left arrow as an equivalent to pressing a home

Here’s a work around I did.
I picked an odd number, 7. Then on the dialog where the time can be set, I
entered 6 zeros, and the digit 5. My goal was to make it be 5 seconds.
I think it landed on the minutes segment, and read that I had 00 hours 50
minutes 00 seconds, and 000 decimals of seconds.
I entered the 7 digit sequence to put all zeros, and shift the digit to see
where it landed next. I repeated the input until I could shift the 5 to the
placeholder for just 5 seconds.
You could probably use any length of digits, as long as you pick an odd
number to shift things around, with the final digits being the actual time
you want. Wonky, but it worked for my use.

Hi David and Keith.
SORRY!!!! I followed your advice, I did many other tests, but I did not find
I use a mac air, a laptop.
I think there is no way to enter hours and minutes, seconds correctly.
The cursor is in a random position I do not know.
Now I wait for someone who has a computer similar to mine and who has found
the right way.
Thanks and good music

Command+Left goes to the “home: Or beginning of a line.
I was thinking of the iOS platform, where control+home goes there.

On a full sized Mac keyboard, there ids a home key, in the same location
as on all other keyboards.
For laptop, or bluetooth keyboards, the home key and others are removed to
streamline the look.
using Control+Left arrow generally goes to the “Home” of the line, or the
beginning of the line. The same as the home key when it’s pressed.
Command+Up arrow goes to the “Home” of the document, or top of it. The
same as control+home on Windows, and other operating systems, and apps.

don't put any commas between digits, just type in the numbers.
With regard to the "home key", could one of the mac users on this list
help Paolo with this?

nfortunately I can not find any key with the name "home key" in the mac
Really Should I put a comma after each digit, e.g. 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0?

There are a couple of things.
1. Before you start typing in any numbers, you need to press the Home
key to make the first digit the focus. (I'm assuming this works on a
2. When typing in the digits don't include any spaces. So to take your
example, and assuming that the time format is hh:mm:ss + milliseconds,
you would type the numbers 0,0,0,2,0,0,0,0,0.

In Audacity for Mac, there are many fields where you can enter hours,
minutes, seconds etc. I can not correctly insert the values I want to
insert. E.g.: I want to enter 00 hours, 02 minutes, 00 seconds. I
write in the field: 00 02 00 , separated by space, and unfortunately
the number 2 is in a random place!!! How should I write?
