Post subject:  Turning tracks into chapters

I'm trying to join groups of tracks into one single track, with each original track forming a single chapter within the new larger track. This is because I have a large classical music collection and it makes more sense for me to have each individual work as a single track with the individual movements as chapters. I thought this was possible with your software, but when I try it, I either get 4 individual tracks, or one long track and one chapter. Any suggestions?

A chapter is the only unit allowed within an audiobook file and you cannot have subchapters within a chapter. One layer of Chapter breaks are all the current audiobook file format understands.

The best that can be done is to make each track a chapter (using the split button) if you still want them able to be navigated between, and then mark the movement as part of the chapter name, or forego the tracks and use chapters to mark the movements by joining each movement into a single chapter. You can also use part lengths to create separate part files within the same audiobook, but you will not have exact control over where the parts are divided. Part division is based on time and not between specific chapters.

I hope this helps some.
