Dexpot and Audacity

Postby BartZorn » 20.02.2014 11:44:37

This is in no way a complaint, but ...

I am using Audacity 2.0.5 to convert my old vinyl records to MP3. The processing by Audacity often takes a few minutes, during which time I am tempted to switch to another Dexpot desktop and do something else. As soon as Audacity has finished its task, (I suppose) it grabs focus and forces Dexpot to switch back to the desktop where Audacity is running. From that moment on, Audacity no longer responds to the mouse or keyboard and I only can force it to stop using Task Manager.

Could this be an interaction problem between Dexpot and Audacity, or should I blame Audacity itself?

I am using Windows 7 x64 SP1, all updates installed, Dexpot 1.6.11, build 2394 and Audacity 2.0.5.

Thanks and regards,

Bart Zorn

Under "Settings > Plugins and Extras", is the option "Behavior of windows on other desktops" set to "Switch to the respective desktop"? Or why else does Audacity finishing processing force a desktop switch?

Actually, the setting was "Copy window to current desktop", and that is definitely not what I want.

I have apparently overlooked this setting. Thanks for pointing this out.

I have changed the setting to "Switch to the respective desktop", which is what I want.

Thanks and regards!
