Big Sur - Move Along Timeline while Recording and Editing

Post by LizLiz6 » Sun May 09, 2021 12:23 am

Hello.

Whenever I am recording or editing, the screen shows and moved up to 9.0 and then does not move along with the recording, so unless I manually slide it, I stop seeing it once the cursor has moved past 9.0. It used to move along and then just stopped and I am not sure why. I tried playing with all sorts of settings etc.

Screen shot shows exactly how much can be seen and how it never moves along with the recording.

Thank you!
