Use Video Follows Edit Mode issue

When Use Video Follows Edit Mode is activated, the cursor always returns to the beginning of the last highlighted event instead of returning to its original start position (Return to Start Position on Stop is activated).

Here’s an example:

Can this be disabled as it is extremely frustrating?

No, afraid not – that’s how it works.

I think the idea behind the design that the user activates it to spot audio to video, rather than leaving it on in general.

No, it is the intention of the edit mode to do exactly this…
the solution would be to deactivate edit mode

In Ableton Live this feature is always on by default without it forcefully snapping the cursor to an event, so dragging events around always updates the video position.

I would love to have that.
