Timeline Zoom Slider Control Behavior

When zooming in on the timeline using the zoom slider control, what is Shotcut zooming in on? Is it just the center of the timeline?

I use that zoom slider constantly when editing 1-2 hour long videos and when I zoom in I’d love it if it would zoom in on the playhead so I don’t have to slowly scroll left/right to find the playhead. Is there some option that maybe I’m missing to allow that? Or, after I’m fully zoomed in, is there someway to jump to the playhead in the timeline without having to scroll left/right to locate it?

Hi @thefool

Go to the Timeline menu > Options and click on Scroll to Playhead on Zoom


Thank you! I also didn’t realize I was using an older version. Got it updated and this is exactly what I was looking for.
