I appreciate the answer.
As indicated in my post, I did look at the manual for the current version, but couldn’t find a mention of the autoscroll option. Yet, people seem to refer to the option in quite recent posts elsewhere (even in the discussion for the 2.0.6 Alpha version, which I also checked and didn’t find the option).
In 2.0.5, “Update display while playing” is on by default and is in the Tracks Preferences: > Audacity Manual > .
Yes, it is, and I checked the playback behavior with that option both on and off. It does not do the same thing as autoscroll. Autoscroll is supposed to keep the cursors in the middle of the screen while continuously moving the wavegraph.
Is autoscroll not available in the current version? I find it very difficult to do editing without it (after having worked with a number of sound editing programs that have that feature).
