Understanding 'checkbox' Add. function left of filename.

Asked by Ed DeLauter

There is a data field immediately to the left of the >>>> File: name area <<<<< that has a checkmark box and the word Add.
What is the purpose of this data field? Do you ' Add.' the filename before starting the recording? What is the difference between having the checkbox highlighted and not highlighted?

I have not found any User Help files outside of the .html files generated when either the Timer information box or the Filename Format information box is ticked .

Thank you and the app is very appreciated.

"Add" means adding and continuing recording to an existing file.
It will not create a new filename or file. It adds to the previous file if possible.

Notice that audio-recorder creates filenames automatically. Editing the filename field has no effect.
