I am seeing what looks like a bug in the interaction of marker editing and file saving in the audio editor. This appears to be a consequence of my non-default audio file settings, which specify that markers are to be written to an external file but not to the header of the audio file. With these settings, if I open an audio file and add a marker, then invoke either Save All or Save (active file), the file tab continues to show an asterisk, even though I believe the .MRK file has been properly written. If I then try to close the file tab, I get the pop-up asking me if I want to save the file first, presumably because, as the asterisk suggests, the file is still thought to have changed. If I say “yes”, the file tab closes, but then if I subsequently reopen the file in the same WaveLab session, it opens with the asterisk on the file tab! However, if I say “no”, then reopening the file does not produce an asterisk on the tab.
This is WaveLab 10.0.40.
I think the bug is harmless, in the sense that the correct data is being written in the correct places, but it certainly is confusing.
