All you need to do is go to the Save Tracks window, select the album(s) you want to save and click Save Tracks.

Of course, you do have to insert trackbreak markers in the correct positions first and name your tracks.  There are several ways to do this and the Help file does go into these in reasonable detail, but it's easiest if you can find your album in one of the online databases.  Then, if the listing includes track times, it's more or less all done for you, although you do need to adjust the markers manually to get them in exactly the right place.

I would do it when recording is complete.  Then you can go and do something else while recording is in progress.
