Hi guys, it's me again, still struggling with Tracktion. Another question now: how can I edit tracks and clips names

I'm not in front of T right now, but typically when you select an item, the properties area at the bottom has a label box you can edit.
So click on a track (click the name to select the whole track, not just a clip on it) and you should now be able to edit that track name below.

You can also select more than one clip (either alt-drag with cursor, or shift click several clips) and name them all at the same time. As long as they're all selected.

Thank you, guys, I got it

turn on those help bubbles, mate, and before you post (a) take ten minutes to look for it yourself (b) read the helpfile and (c) search the forums. I'm sorry if I seem a bit unfriendly, but... this is so basic!

some people pick stuff up fast, some take a little longer, and almost everyone differs in the things they do get quickly. You might be asking Jax for help with something someday.

Hehe, you're right. Apologies.

Just FYI I had to switch off the help bubbles: they were driving me crazy, popping up all the time with information that wasn't by no means the one I was looking for.
I also had a look at the help file the first couple of times I launched Tracktion, but I gave up: loads of obvious information, and none of the one I was needing at the moment.
In my defense I have to say I'm not dumb, just got used to a vey different paradigm. Those who started Muzys and gave up know what I mean. I spent weeks scratching my head (even reading tutorials) but finnaly I got the idea. And if not for the lack of hardisk recording and other audio streaming features I would never be looking somewhere else.

Point taken - sorry to be sounding brusk, nothing personal!
I hope your paradigm shift goes well; I'm sure you'll enjoy it (and think, "of course this is how it should work") once you've gotten there.
