I’m not sure I would classify this as a bug from my perspective. Depending on which scroll setting you have enabled, the timeline might or might not follow the play head. It is possible to play an area on the timeline that is not showing if you are zoomed in and scrolled elsewhere in the timeline. In the case of the video linked, the play head is just before the visible area zoomed in the timeline, so it’s technically “where it should be,” and it shortly scrolls into view. If it’s an offputting visual scenario, I suppose the bottom half of the play head could be obscured until it reaches the X position that is greater than the boundary of the track titles. I can see why it would be confusing to some people.
Thank you for the screen recording. I can see the problem as plain as day. But for some reason I can not recreate it.
Can anybody guess what I am doing wrong? Maybe there is some other aspect to the problem like video mode or screen resolution? I’ve tried dozens of times and the cursor is always in the correct location.
Après avoir cliqué sur “zoom to fit” vous devez encore zoomer plus. Mais pour moi, ce n’est pas un bug, car la playhead est sur sa bonne position. Peut-être suffirait-il de ne pas l’afficher si elle est en dehors de la zone.
After clicking “zoom to fit” you need to zoom in even more.
But for me, it’s not a bug, because the playhead is in its correct position.
Perhaps it would be enough to not display it if it is outside the area.
