In Audacity, if you hover your cursor over the red record button, the solution is presented to you: Click Shift-Record to resume recording from the point you
set your cursor. I think this is a newer feature, but I’ve found it to be very helping is deleting the coughing spells that occasionally pop up in long-form recording projects. You can stop the recorder, delete the cough and go back to a clean point to resume
the speaker’s thought and the recording, clicking the Shift-Record buttons. (Whereas, simply hitting the Record button as you describe will start a new recording track.)
I love it!

Subject: Re: [CRTech] Audacity - New Features
Actually, it is a very big inconvenience if you are recording long stretches of audio and you want to be able to stop, edit in the moment, and keep moving forward. I produce many programs with local pastors who come to the studio to record. When they lose
their train of thought and want to start over, when they have a coughing fit and need to pause for water, when they realize they skipped over 2 verses of Scripture and need to retake, Audition shines and Audacity is a pain. With Audition, I just stop, go
back to that point, and start again. The second editing pass is pretty painless. With Audacity, I have to generate a whole new file, copy paste the retake, and drop it in. Or leave the entire session running, then go back and edit a file that can be twice
or three times as long as the finished product. When you do as many hours of editing per week as I do, every click counts.

Seriously, I don’t understand why this is such a big problem. I’ve adapted quickly ... Not a lot of extra steps at all.
It's only a big deal for folks who only like knowing one way to do a single task.
