I do this constantly. If you click the region at the top where the measure markers are, it sets the current song position to where you clicked. Except for when it doesn’t. If you happen to click the very top edge, it will instead set the left marker, aka locate point 1.
Since it’s only at the very top edge, you’d think it would be rare to make this mistake, but apparently I have a magic mouse with infrared targeting capabilities because it happens enough to be an irritation.
Is there any way to disable the feature of setting the L/R marker with the mouse? I’ve looked in the manual, preferences, etc. and haven’t seen it, but I’m hoping I’ve just overlooked something obvious.
For anyone else who gets happy with the mouse on a regular basis, I found one approach to solving this problem.
I’ve noticed if I have the left / right markers set to encompass the entire song, clicking within those boundaries doesn’t reset the markers. It’s only when clicking before / after the left / right range.
Not a perfect solution, but close enough for rock and roll.
