When I middle-click to a position and then play a song then the first screen change comes one bar too late. The following screen changes are ok.

Please see the screencast: http://youtu.be/V0SdUULyyQI

Discussion

  • it's intentional behavior, working as design, since >= 0.6.0, see change-log:

    • A bit of slack have been introduced to put "Follow Playhead"
      (aka. auto-scroll view mode) on hold, while doing in-flight
      selection edit moves.

    which means that the follow-playhead behavior (aka. auto-scroll) will be put on hold temporarily (~3secs) before it skips to next screen whenever you make at least one select/edit action over the current while playback is rolling.

    main reason for this is just convenience: it let's you stay in focus on the screen you're probably about to proceed with some more changes for awhile, before it scrolls to the next--at least it gives you that slack amount of time to decide whether to do something there or just let it go ;)

    cheers

    Thanks. Since it irritates me I made a patch to set QTRACTOR_SYNC_VIEW_HOLD to 0.

    Maybe you could make it configurable some time in Options->Display?

    Regards
