Playback stops when I click ahead

I’m using Windows 10, and I just updated to Audacity 3.1.3 (but I had the same issue on a previous version)

While I’m editing, I will be playing the track, and then sometimes I want to skip ahead or back a little bit. But when I skip ahead, the track pauses. How can I stop this from happening??

This works for me on 3.1.3 in Windows 10 when I use the Left, Right, Shift-Left, and Shift-Right keys on my keyboard to do short and long skips.

Thanks! I guess I will have to get into the habit of doing this. What’s even weirder is that it only does it every other time. If I click ahead in the timeline, it pauses, and then if I click again, it starts playing again! So weird…

How are you doing that?
