record: it starts recording at the end of track 1, even when I've selected an empty space in another track elsewhere

I select an empty space, let’s say in the beginning (anywhere) and on some track (lets’ say the 2nd one down)
ANd I press record, and the recording starts on the top track at the very end. Evey time.
It’s not ideal… especially when the drag function does not scroll the screen and there is a lot of maneuvering across tracks…
Once I got it to “stay” where I put it, but I cannot recreate that.

I must be doing something wrong. :open_mouth:
How can I do it “right”?
Thank you :slight_smile:

Use Shift + Record to record on a new track
