Hi Gman,

The pics are uploaded now.  I was just wanting to give view a quick view of 
some of what I had been looking at.  The drop down menu on the left panel 
was messing with my head alot.  I also snapped a dropdown menu from 
preferences, just three basic shots.

I am feeling a bit more comfortable that I have found so much info 
(tutorials) and all for the program.  I even found a manual that I 
downloaded and would send you a copy if you like.  It is a .pdf file.

I had a question in my mind today about how to cut up my long file easily if 
I did not need to rework each song separately and stumbled onto a question 
in a forum of a girl with the same question..seems there could be a way.  If 
you like I can send her question, I think I found a possible answer for her 
in my searching on google.

"have a fairly big project --- transferring music on audio tapes to 
CDs.Ideally I hope to get CDs which give user control to access any audio 
track on the CD rather than have one large recording for each side of an 
audio tape and have to search around

I have discovered the multiple save feature which gives separate tracks (and 
auto naming -- track 1, track2, etc) which is going to help a lot BUT to use 
this I first need to set up the label markers , at the points where one 
audio tape track moves to next one. With lots of tapes this is going to be 
time consuming .

Any one know if it can be automated ?"

Thanks




"The key issue for me is dividing up the larger edited file into separate 
tracks for burning. I'm a complete novce in using Audacity but I thought 
there might be a quick way of detecting where the spaces between tracks are 
located and insert a marker at that point and then use multiple save to 
provide automatic separation and naming .I would still like to know if this 
is possible or impossible (in which case I'll have to proceed manually)"

Above is a link I found that could be helpful for this.
