I have recorded an audio mic track. I click on the track to select it. I click on the Strip Silence tool and the tool appears. I can change the values in the tool but the Applu button remains dimmed. I cannot apply the changes. What am I doing wrong?

You say you click on the track, but you should click on the audio event. Is Apply still grayed out when you do that?

Thanks for the answer. I am a beginner and it is becoming obvious that I need a detailed reference book/tutorial for version 3. Can anyone recommend this? The videos on the PreSonus website and the product help aren't adequate. Thanks

I have the same problem so, the next question is, " What is an audio event?"

Same problem here.

Be great if folks took the extra second to explain how to do that one thing that noob's are missing.  Everything is a rabbit hole.

What I figured out from a YT video finally is that you have to use the splitting tool to section off an event, then you'll be able to apply strip silence.
