Default "Limit project length, Stop playback" function on non active Project tabs (FIXED)

I use Reaper live and this function is very useful to make Crossfaded Segways between 2 Project tabs. This way I can Have a Fermata Holding on Tab#1 and Start Tab#2 at the same time. When #1 is over, it'll stop by itself if I preprogram a stop time.

BUT

I just discovered that Tab#1 doesn't really stop until I put it in focus first.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE

1- Have 2 Tabs Opened and Set Auto-Stop on Tab#1 (Project Settings/Advanced/LimitProject Length...). Make sure you still have audio AFTER your stop point to validate that the Tab is still playing...

2- Hit Play and Switch to Tab#2 before Tab#1 reaches its Preprogrammed Stop Point.

3- Hear that Tab 2 Won't stop where it was supposed to.

4- When you switch back to Tab#1, it will stop normally.

So this function does NOT work on Background Tabs???
Can somebody confirm???


EDIT: Thanks Justin for fixing it in 550reapre1!!!

Reaper is becoming a Workhorse for live playback.

I use make extensive use of Marker Actions and the Loopback Functions to Direct all Tabs to a Master Routing Tab. Along with Smooth Seeking, it'll take Ableton Live for a looooong ride.

well, action markers don't work in unfocused project tabs either, so look out for that. please post more about your use of REAPER live because it sounds like you're doing what i've been bullying REAPER into doing for the last four years or so and it's good to hear someone else making it work.

Yeah I know about Action Marker in Background. I just got used to workarounds.

I will eventually make an extensive Reaper for live Video Serie that will get more people to understand how great Reaper is as a playback engine.
