annoying shortcuts put out on desktop


Recommended Posts

When I split a music file into, say, 15 smaller files and then hit ´save all files' WavePad saves the 15 files to hard disk (as it should) but at the same time puts 15 shortcuts to the files out on the desktop. Why (I mean who would want that) ? And how do I prevent such a creation of shortcuts ?

 

Cheers

I have tried the same. I entered 1 MP3 file about 9 min long and I divide it on 1 min each when I click on save all files it just shows the message to decide the Format and location but it didn't create shortcuts on my desktop.

 

I was using ver 6.55 latest version available. Which version were you using? Maybe you have used any different setting.

 

 

Since is so weird also I recommend you to open a ticket to NCH support team: http://www.nch.com.au/support/index.html

1000 thanks, Tsam.

My version of WavePad is 6.33

Perhaps I should be more specific. Most important is perhaps point 6 below.

 

1) The file I am splitting is a .wav file, not .mp3. Let's say it is called exp.wav.

2) The way I split it is by setting up bookmarks, named s2, s3, s4 etc. Then I hit edit/"split file at bookmarks"

3) Then I hit file/"save all files"

4) for each sub-file I choose a) location (same folder as original), then B) get a window called "encoder options". Here I choose "auto preserves original format". I write nothing in "encoding" and in "format".

5) Wavepad now creates the subfiles and gives them names such as exp - s2.wav, exp - s3.wav, and so on.

6) At the same time WavePad puts some files out on the desktop. BUT I WAS WRONG: they are not shortcuts. They are individual files with the extension .wbm, i.e. exp - s2.wbm, exp - s3.wbm, and so on. They are 40 byte each.

 

Do you have any Idea what is happening ?
