Default How to Go to edit cursor (Obey Smooth seek)

Title says it all.
I've been trying to find this action to no avail.
I'm able to move the cursor without seeking. But when my cursor is finally at the right place, I want be able to cue the (already playing) sequence there without loosing my sync to the click.

Any ideas?

there is SWS: wait till next bar.

so a custom action that is SWS: wait till next bar + PLAY should do it.

Man I so wish I can make this happen. But a search with the word "wait" did not yield any result relevant result?

Could I be missing some actions? I have sws 2.8.7

...And once again: Reaper For the win.

If anybody else wants to do this:

1- Make sure Smooth Seek is Enabled

Here's the very simple macro:
Move Edit Cursor forward one beat (no seek)
Move Edit Cursor Back one beat
DONE

So now, you move your edit cursor with all the "No seek" actions and when you're ready,
You hit this last macro.

I didn't know what smooth seek was but the fine trusty manual saved the day.

Use smooth seek: this enables you to allow playback to continue to the end of a specified number of measures, or to the next marker or end of region, before seeking.

Prefs / Audio / Seeking says
Play to the end of [1] more measures before seeking

That works here, when i click another place in the toolbar, the current measure finishes before it jumps.

So what is the application here? What are you trying to do ?

The application is to be able to pre-cue a certain spot of a song while playing live and fire it at will.
This is all to keep the computer in sync with a singer that wants the freedom of changing the structure on the fly.
