I had mentioned this on the old forum, but it is really starting to drive me nuts. I chop up a lot of voiceovers, so use the sped-up playback option at 170% in the audio module. The problem is that probably 20% of the time, I am previewing a file, and I hit the spacebar in order to to stop at a precise point, and the blinking “now” cursor, rather than stopping there, jumps back to the starting point cursor (where I had last begun playback). I think it must be buffer-related because I can follow the exact procedure 5 times in a row and it will happen about once. PG had acknowledged a buffer issue on sped-up playback where you couldn’t access the final seconds of the sped-up clip. There may be something similar here–if you happen to stop where the buffer is grabbing another chunk of audio, the WL may not know where to locate the “now” cursor and just reverts to previous playback spot.
Other factors that can’t be ruled out: I use the up/down arrows during playback to zoom in when I am nearing a split/cut point. This makes the jumpback even more frustrating, because the waveform display jumps back to some other spot in the track. This effectively doubles the work I have to do. I may have listened to a 2 minute section and found a great split point, but this jumpback leaves me no indication how far I had played through, so I have to try to find the split point again. Even if the start cursor and the now cursor are both visible throughout playback ,this jumpback behavior can occur. The more rapidly you start/stop with the spacebar sequence seems to impact the likelihood of seeing this.
