Where is play head ?

Running Audacity 3.1.2 on Win 10 21H1.

I hadn’t used the program for years and I was surprised to no longer find the play head. I checked the manual reference here and the play head is still mentioned.

Strange. I’ve not seen any other reports of that, and this is Audacity 3.1.2 playing a “Chirp” on my (Linux) machine:


I posted a feedback here so the dev could see it. It sounds like a bug but no one else seems to notice it or be annoyed.

See my replies to you there …
