Thanks for following up. If I select "open audio file" from the floating toolbar, flac files are only shown if I force it to show all formats. When I attempt to load a flac, it comes up with the special file format dialogue where I tried 16-bit, 44.1kHz etc but the result was garbage. I'll attach a screenshot showing the supported files - flac doesn't seem to be in the list.
