@Yorksie The situation you said is weird. Usually, after you detach the audio from the video, click the video in the video track and then delete it, the audio file will be the sound track. Would you please contact our support team to find out the problem?

Doesn't work. When you delete the video, it also deletes the audio. You can trick it by copying the audio track only, then deleting both and pasting the audio back. However when you do this the audio is lost, no sound is played. Saving this as MP3 results in an empty file. What does work is simply saving the video as MP3. So rather than cutting and pasting the manual to get clicks you might actually try to do it first Liza.
