    And can that be done with 'any' saved file . . in any application? - If so, how does a rat run this maze, and I'm as serious as I can be. Also, if I have taken the blip off the end of a tape cut ( using Amadeus II , love it ) . . how do I complete the preservation of that change? I'm serious. ( That's n-e-w-b-i-e ! )

    saved audio files are compiled you would have to "decompile" the audio file to edit it again...there are some software to do it, but i'm not completely sure what apps are out there for that...maybe check to find some.

    as for other apps, again, they are compiled and you would have to decompile them. first, you need to know what programming language that was used to program the app, and you would have to find some decompilers that could handle that language correctly (also, different compilers have special instructions and usually you have to decompile the app with the one that it was compiled with to decompile correctly).

    hope that helps.

    Yes, you can edit saved files, but if you want to preserve the original, save the edited file using "Save As..." instead of "Save" or you will replace the original with the edited version. If you want to save only the edited version and you are really sure, then you can use simply "Save." You can reedit until the cows come home. Are you asking what it seems you are? It is like asking if you can edit a Microsoft Word document after you have saved it, which of course is yes. I wonder if your question is that basic, or much deeper and I am missing it.
