Record Button Not Linking With Play Button?

How Do I get Cubase to record and play like it normally did?
When I hit the record button it only enables the record function, but does not start recording till I hit the darn play button! so frustrating,

also, how come start recording at the left locater isn’t working? It is selected… I have no idea what is happening with this version.

really pissed off at the moment, please help.


Found it! I had accidentally enabled the external sync button down in the transport… !
