Markers not being positioned properly during playback

When playing back and playback cursor goes off screen, markers(hitting m) are played at the edit cursor and not the playback cursor.

So, if one is trying to tempo map and hitting M on the beats, and they happen to be zoomed in, the markers end up "stacking up" at the edit cursor.

Simple solution, just zoom out, but weird and not expected behavior. (I like this behavior in some cases but not all)

Please, start a discussion thread before entering BRs: this is not a bug, this is intentional.

(For this type of workflow you just need Options > Automatically scroll view during playback and probably: Options > continuous scrolling)

Um, no, you are not providing a solution. I do not want the window to scroll.

The behavior of reaper of initially placing the markers at the playback cursor then jumping to placing them at the edit cursor when the playback cursor goes out of view is inconsistent.

It should be one or the other. I would expect that only after the edit cursor has changed positions should it then default to using the edit cursor... not when the playback cursor goes off screen.

When we start playback and are putting markers down at the playback cursor(hitting M)... we don't expect this behavior to change... yet it does.

If we are playing back something and using the edit cursor to place markers(by hand using the mouse to find the location and hitting M) then we don't expect this to change either(it doesn't, yet the first does).

Manually moving the edit cursor should trigger the change from the first case to the second, not that the playback cursor goes off screen... Since that is unpredictable to some degree as it depends on the view size, zoom, and location.

As said above, this is not a discussion forum.
