Summary0008088: Ardour 6rc1.176 - Exporting does not work correctly
DescriptionWhen exporting a mixdown to an audio file, I notice that trying to export a WAV 44.1, 32but (non-float) file does not work correctly. When creating a new export profile, hitting SAVE populates the log with this kind of line:

2020-04-28T23:27:30 [ERROR]: XML error: failed to load external entity "/home/steve/.config/ardour6/export/BWAV 32float Export (copy).format"

Continuing on with setting up the export settings, the popup box does some weird things in the section regarding dither type. (ref. the two screen captures please). After first selected 32bit, all the dither types seem to be available (in white text). But if you click to 16bit, then back to 32bit, all the dither types, except NONE, turn RED.

The resulting export more often than not turns out to be 32bit float. I have not figured out how to, with confidence, make a non-float 32bit file.
TagsNo tags attached.

I forgot to mention, during the export, most of the time I end up with two files. One, with all the naming conventions I chose, and an identical file, with a generic name and the tag I placed for the export settings. For example, "session_WAV_441_32bit".
