Hi David,

Okay, I misinterpreted "at the end of the project".  You meant at the bottom of the tracks list, but I was thinking timewise, so Shift+r is what you want.  Sorry.

Well, 2.2.0 is unofficially released.  I was waiting until I heard from my translators that the released bits work in their languages.  That is just a precaution, since the rc works with other languages.  The only change is that I changed the installer a bit.  When it installs, it warns if there are scripts in the destination folders.  That test used to be audacity.*.  Now it checks for the possible script file extensions, so you could have something like audacity.jss~, say from a backup file created by Emacs, that wouldn't trigger the warning.  I know that's not the kind of change that be made after an rc, but I'm hoping Murphy (the one with the law) is busy elsewhere!  :-)

Hi Gary,
R does append now, but I don't think I wrote anything to contradict this, did I?
Great to see that you've released version 2.2.0 of your script.

    Jim, since you're using JAWS, you might want to try the JAWS
    script for Audacity
    It gives a lot of feedback and makes accessing some information,
    like the start and end time of the selection easier to get.  You
    can look at the README
    <https://github.com/campg2j003/JAWS-Script-for-Audacity>, press h
    a couple of times to get to the start of the README.

    Hi Jim,
    welcome to the list. Just out of interest, which audio editor are
    you using at the moment to record your shows?
    There are a number of ways in Audacity to do what you want to do,
    but perhaps the most straightforward is to have each voice break
    and each song as a separate track.
    Some of the important points in doing this:
    1. If you import some audio, which in your case would be a song,
    a new track is appended to the project, and the audio is inserted
    into that track. The shortcut for importing audio is ctrl+shift+I.
    2. For recording each voice section, if you press shift+R, this
    records in new track at the end of the project. On the transport
    menu, there is a transport sub menu, where you should make sure
    that the overdub option is not checked, as you don't want to hear
    any of the other tracks when you record your voice.
    3. When you've got all your tracks together, you then need to
    align the audio in the tracks so that they play after each other,
    rather than all at the same time. To do this, press ctrl+shift+k
    to select all the tracks, open the tracks menu, open the align
    tracks sub menu, and choose align end to end.

    If you need more detailed information of certain issues, just
    mail the list,
