Vertical line needed when cursor is on waveform

Permanent link to this post Posted by seanspotatobusiness » Sat Jun 10, 2017 8:29 am

In the top picture, the cursor is on the thing along the top with the time and a useful vertical line appears on the waveform which tells me where my cursor is in the waveform. In the bottom picture, the cursor is on the waveform and no vertical line appears which leaves me guessing exactly where my imminent selection is going to start. I'd like a vertical line when my cursor is on the waveform! Thanks.

By "cursor" do you mean "mouse pointer"?

Yes, the mouse pointer.

You can see where the selection starts/ends if you drag a rough selection in the waveform then adjust the selection edges.
