Playerhead no longer moves to mouse click as in older versions

I have been using Shotcut for years. Great editor, love it. However, a key editing feature has changed in newer versions I need. I had been using V22.06 and decided to upgrade to latest on one PC. When I click on the timeline the playerhead no longer centers on that position. I tried a few older versions and the last one I found that worked like I wanted was V23.07. Not a huge deal, I’ll just use the older version, but it’d be nice if this worked again in the future. It’s a pain dragging the timeline around to find the playerhead after cutting or pasting a large chunk of video.

Hi @Scott_Wilkins

That’s because the Rectangle Selection tool is enabled by default on install.
Read the Documentation page linked below to learn how to disable it.

But if you decide to leave the Rectangle Selection tool enabled, you can always click on the top of the timeline to move the playhead

Thank you very much! I will experiment with the rectangular selection till at some point but that worked perfectly.
