Re: Editing sound files in Vista
I just tried with a wma file, split a second from the beginning. The Audio
part has to be selected in the timeline for Clip commands to be available,
you also must position the cursor so the command has something to do (you
can't split at the beginning only anywhere in the middle). Then I
successfully published it as an wma file (was given no choice of format it
knew it was audio only).
I tried again with some wav file from Office 95 and it was the same.
